I was locked in, watching every handshake, as I nodded my head to the beat. I thought to myself, I’ve never been cool enough to have any of these handshakes. Then I thought about all the different handshakes I’ve seen over the years. Then I thought, who could be responsible for this commercial? Maybe the NBA? Nike? Nope, it was Android! Advertisement at its finest.
My friend Chase sent me a screenshot1 from the commercial, and then called me all excited. “Dude, you recognize that gym, huh!? That’s H.L’s gym!” H.L.2 is our high school. That’s two local kids featured in a Google/Android commercial. I texted my sister—who goes to H.L.—to ask her if she knew either of them. She replied, “Hamburger, I think.”
