In addition to the start of the 2016-17 NBA season, H-E-B customers and San Antonio Spurs fans are enjoying the grocery chain’s new round of six television commercials, featuring acting performances by both current and former Spurs players.
This year’s commercials showcase products like H-E-B Prime 1 Beef and H-E-B Texas Pets with a star-studded cast, including: LaMarcus Aldridge, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Patty Mills, Tony Parker, the squad’s newest big man, Pau Gasol, and a few familiar faces from prior seasons, according to H-E-B.
New this year, H-E-B brought back Spurs’ legends for a special commercial shoot. George Gervin, Sean Elliott, Bruce Bowen, David Robinson and Tim Duncan came out of retirement to lend acting expertise to the advertisements.
This continued collaboration between H-E-B and Spurs Sports & Entertainment has led to community investment projects and provided Spurs fans and H-E-B customers with player appearances and fan appreciation events throughout the year, H-E-B says.
San Antonio-based H-E-B, with sales of more than $23 billion, operates more than 380 stores in Texas and Mexico.
