NBA Legend Scottie Pippen is one of the greatest to ever do it on the biggest stage. He won six titles in his NBA career and he was rightfully named to the NBA 50 and NBA 75 teams for his contributions. But Scottie does have some embarrassing moments, especially in this commercial which left the crowd going nuts.

Pippen played alongside Jordan for the majority of his career. At that time, Jordan was the most marketable star in sports. He had an iconic image worldwide and endorsed tons of products. Pippen surely would not have received the same attention as Jordan but he surely had his fair share of commercials. And one of them is so funny, that would leave everyone in tears.

Scottie Pippen appeared in Mr. Submarine’s commercial

Pippen had big-name commercials and he also appeared next to other stars. But there was one brand where he was the main star. And that was Chicago’s Mr.Submarine.

And the commercial was absolutely brilliant. Scottie dribbles next to a 6-foot sub and he has a brilliant line and he delivers like only how Scottie delivers. He says, ” “This is one 6-footer I can’t handle one on one. Ladies, let’s have a party,”. After that, he is seen having subs with the two ladies. Later at the end, he dunks a ball which turns into a sub. Despite all the commercials Jordan would have done, he may not have done something as funny as this.

Pippen was drafted by the Bulls and he formed a dynasty with Jordan. He was one of the first to play the role of a point forward and he excelled at it. He was an excellent defender and he was named on the All-Defensive First team for 8 years. Pippen had 2 three-peats with the Bulls and was part of arguably the greatest team ever. Along with that, he also has the Mr. Submarine commercial which is seen as the ‘Best Worst NBA Commercial’.
