Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs is at it again with his newest commercial for ShakeDowns baby carrots.
Without saying a single word, Bonner’s presence alone steals the show in the ad for this Bolthouse Farms product.
Bonner seems to embrace being in front of the camera once again and shows that his quirkiness is indeed marketable. Maybe some local companies might want in on the Bonner rush, during what might be his farewell season with the team.
