The commercial aired over the Thanksgiving weekend and was created by by Cohn & Wolfe with Wieden & Kennedy/Portland. The LeBron James 'Chalk' ad appeared primarily during the NFL football games. It featured cameos from Greg Oden, LaMarcus Aldridge, Brandon Roy, Daniel Gibson, Anderson Varejao, J.J. Hicks, and rapper Lil' Wayne, according to Ad Rants.
