Top Spot of the Week: Foot Locker's "Tear Away"
Aaron Stoller of Biscuit Filmworks directed this spot for BBDO New York in which Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden chill out at a party. Westbrook inadvertently splats some mustard on Harden's Foot Locker shirt but not to worry--Harden tears away his full outfit, shirt and pants to reveal another clean set of official Foot Locker attire underneath.
