Special Delivery! LeBron Channels Inner Pizza Man In Blaze Spot

LeBron James filmed a commercial for Blaze Pizza in which he is "delivering pizza" in Akron, or at least "pretending to," according to Jennifer Pignolet of the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL. In the spot, filmed Wednesday, James "carried several pizza boxes and approached a bystander, who was part of the filming, and opened the box and offered pizza." The pizza inside the boxes was "distributed to hungry onlookers" after filming (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 8/15). James became an investor in Blaze Pizza in '12, and in '15 became an official ambassador for the brand. Blaze has expanded from three restaurants in '12 to more than 300 now (THE DAILY).
