Now, although, Curry is aligning himself with a distinct model: China’s Vivo.
In a recently released ad, Curry does what NBA gamers do some too typically in advertisements. They play basketball and narrate philosophical analogies. Here’s a Brita ad, for instance, by which Curry dribbles and talks about water dribbling.
And for Vivo, it is the identical factor. Curry shoots, Curry dribbles, Curry philosophizes about future and focus. He even manages a strained connection between his focus and the, oh, give attention to his new Vivo Xplay 6 phone.
