H-E-B Spurs commercials to hit airwaves Oct. 27

October 21, 2016

H-E-B’s lauded series of commercials starring the San Antonio Spurs returns to the airwaves next week, the company said Friday.

The San Antonio-based grocer released a series of teasers Friday, all shorter than 20 seconds, leading to the commercials’ premiere next Thursday.

Among the sights glanced during the teasers are newly retired power forward Tim Duncan wandering into a foggy room bathed in white light, point guard Patty Mills donning an origami hat and point guard Tony Parker manning a food truck.

Newcomer Pau Gasol, who signed with the Spurs in July, also makes his H-E-B commercial debut alongside commercial veteran Manu Ginobili.

H-E-B teased Duncan’s commercial last week in which Duncan is invited to a “secret retirement club” of Spurs “legends” with former players David Robinson, George Gervin, Bruce Bowen and Sean Elliott.

The Spurs will face off against the Golden State Warriors in their season opener Oct. 25 in Oakland.
