If you were a kid growing up in the '90s, and you loved tear-away clothing, then this James Harden Footlocker commercial will give you a laugh. Executed perfectly, the new ad features Olympic gold medalist and NBA star James Harden, who shows viewers that in terms of "fresh" gear, you should always be well stocked.

Also featured in the commercial is Russell Westbrook, Harden's Oklahoma City Thunder teammate, who is shown hanging out with Harden at a party when he accidentally spills mustard on Harden's T-shirt. Rather than making a fuss, however, Harden says, "With gear this fresh, I always have more than one," and proceeds to rip off his tee to reveal the exact same shirt underneath. Then, Westbrook squirts some mustard on Harden's beard -- watch the ad here to see what he does in response! Stats for Tear-Away Beards Trending: Older & Average
