Jason Day, JR Smith Appear in Nike Ad At Firestone

Okay it’s not a real advertisement, but this Instagram post by the PGA Tour looks awfully advertisey.

World No. 7 Jason Day, wearing his Nike outifit, slow-pokes his way across the Firestone Country Club parking lot to meet Cleveland Cavs star J.R. Smith, who exits from the back of a big black rig wearing, you guessed it, the swoosh.

After the two Nike clients embrace for the cameras with a bro hug, J.R. tells Day that he’s fresh off a “Nike Tour” of Asia.

Exit question: Was that golf cart that nearly clipped Day supposed to be in the commercial? It seemed to come out of nowhere.
