Liquid Death taps Rockets star Jalen Green as new ambassador
Second-year Houston Rockets guard Jalen Green was announced Tuesday as the latest ambassador for non-alcoholic beverage company Liquid Death. The 21-year-old rising star joins the brand’s roster of celebrity backers such as Tony Hawk, Whitney Cummings, Tom Segura, and NFL players Cameron Heyward and Austin Ekeler.
To celebrate, Green and the company collaborated to drop what is officially titled the Liquid Death Hoop Head.
Further details are available from the company’s press release:
Meant to feel like you’re playing with an actual severed head, the limited-edition basketball lets you murder your hoop game with tons of blood-thirsty fun (and without any of the terror-filled screaming of a real head).
The design features a screaming face, missing eyeball, and gory severed neck; is packaged in a premium eco-friendly gift box; and is designed by Will Carsola (creator of Adult Swim’s Mr. Pickles).
It is available exclusively at LiquidDeath.com for $125.
Green excitedly announced the partnership on his social media pages with a commercial, which you can watch below.
Now in his second season with the Rockets, Green is averaging 22.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. The 6-foot-6 guard was drafted at No. 2 overall in the NBA’s 2021 first round, and he’s the leading scorer among players from his draft class.
Now you can murder your thirst and dunk its head, just like me. Teamed up with @LiquidDeath to make these Hoop Heads. Get one at https://t.co/G3XIkwrPbt pic.twitter.com/e2uhRMjV0k
