Admit it, if you were on the edge of becoming famous, wouldn’t you want to be prepared for the changes that follow? Signing autographs, practising how to avoid public places and imagining reading piles of fan mail are just a few things Dante Exum, an NBA draft prospect, has been practising since arriving in the Americas from down under. Basketball fans can watch Dante in five short spots from Foot Locker, which are a part of the athletic retailer’s “Approved” marketing platform, as he is shown a little too eager to become famous, revelling in the “celebrity status” that’s sure to arrive once he’s picked for the season. Didn’t your mom teach you not to count your chickens before they’ve hatched, Dante?
