Kyrie Irving accepts Oscar for performance in commercial

Friday February 20th, 2015

Kyrie Irving acted in a commercial in which he pretended to act in a TV show. Now he's acting in another commercial where he's pretending to accept an Oscar for his acting in the TV show in the original commercial. Follow that? 

Irving appeared in a Foot Locker commercial earlier this month where he showed off his new TV role as a dead body. Now, according to Irving, that lifeless performance has earned him the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Was he nominated for Best Actor for his lead role in the commercial, too?
