VIDEO: Kyrie Irving Made Up As "Uncle Drew" In Pepsi Max Commercial

Fresh off his 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year award, Kyrie Irving and Pepsi released his latest commercial -- a longer mockumentary clip in which Irving is dressed up as an elderly "Uncle Drew" character who comes off the sidelines at a local playground to teach the youngins at thing or two. It's eerily reminiscent of "The LeBrons" commercial for Nike when James was made-up as Wise LeBron (yikes).

Pepsi also showed behind-the-scenes footage of Irving getting made-up as "Uncle Drew," a process that had to take hours. The Jersey native did a pretty good acting job as well, using an impressive old man voice full of sagacious loquaciousness.

Video of the commercial after the jump:
