Editor's Pick

Tracy Morgan compares his own "comeback" to Foot Locker's annual "Week of Greatness" in these humorous spots promoting the annual retail event, which kicks off this weekend. In this spot, the comedian muses on what his return to greatness has in common with the return of the "Week of Greatness" -- wondering (in various funny scenarios) if Foot Locker ever did stuff like prank-call the Kremlin, or jump out of a cake for Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

A second spot sees him explaining how imitators will try to take his place unless he comes back strong. The "imitators" he's worried about include his new chef, a guy delivering flowers, and, er, himself. Morgan's wife and daughter appear in the spot.

The ads are by BBDO, with Jim Jenkins of O Positive directing.
