LeBron James to star in Chinese McDonald's commercials

The Miami Heat really don’t have to worry too much about their first round matchup with the Charlotte Bobcats and while they could lose a game in the series, most of their attention is focused towards their next series. Attention is also being focused on the evolution of LeBron James’ market appeal, as he’s now being seen more and more in commercials everywhere we look.

James can currently be seen in McDonald’s commercials that are running in America but he’s about to take those acting talents of his global. According to Time and the Wall Street Journal, James is going to be featured in McDonald’s commercials exclusive to China.

Per Time:


McDonald’s new ad move is part of drive to lure more Chinese sales, the Wall Street Journal reports, where the company is redoing its China-based stores in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou and overhauling its advertising campaign.

This is not only going to help McDonalds and their global marketplace, but it’s going to help the appeal of the Miami Heat — not that it needed much more help in that department.
