Ja Morant Makes A Cozy Fashion Statement on Hulu’s ‘Sellouts’ Spot

Posted on

Unfortunately, that shiny chalk cloak is just a prop—you can’t buy it, man! Ja’s stylin’ to promote Hulu + Live TV, which includes a full library of streamers, Disney+, and ESPN.

“It took a little longer than expected for the couch to get up and down the runway, so Ja spent most of the time lying on it in between times,” Michael Schneider, VP of branding, direct marketing and licensed Hulu, tells Muse.

Unfortunately, Morant dropped out of the NBA playoffs for knee surgery, so he’ll probably be spending time on the couch for a while.

Big Family Table developed the hilarious commercial, which was released this week on social media, on network TV and, of course, during post-NBA season games. This follows the recent “Sellouts” effort with LaMelo Ball, in which the Charlotte Hornets star was impressively touted as a self-branded fake cereal line.

Another new ad-venture from Morant—unrelated to Hulu—finds the all-star teaming up with Lil Baby, previewing her new song, “Dark Mode,” in a Beats by Dre video created by Translation.
