Hey guys, Izzy here again with the Empower Post Staff! I had the pleasure once again of catching up with Shaun Grant after the "NIKE" commercial and wanted
to share with you his thoughts on everything.
EP:You are a very busy man!
SG: HAHA, not on purpose, only because of passion.
EP: Lol, I like that. So tell us about the "NIKE" commercial you just did and
how did it come about?
SG: It went really well! Super fun and the production team was awesome to work with as well as Victor and Odell. Someone saw the work I was doing with "NIGHT TRAIN" and Uplifter Entertainment and asked me if
I wanted to be apart of it. The fact that growing up I had dreams of being an NFL star, I was all in!
EP: That's terrific Shaun. What was the coolest thing about the shoot?
SG: I would have to say being around people
that are super successful, but are down to earth as well. I truly believe when you come in contact with people like that, you're on the right track.
EP: It's funny you mention that, because people really want to know what makes someone
SG: I used to believe hard work, and don't get me wrong that's a huge part of it, but I think gratitude is really important. Be thankful now for where you are and what you've learned. It teaches you to master your presence and
eventually your performance.
EP: You are just a big bucket of truth are'nt you? LOL!
SG: haha, I guess you can say that.
EP: Don't be modest lol...What was the funniest thing that happened on the
SG: The director at one point kept calling me Victor when my back was turned...Finally he got it right though. I was like wow, he actually thinks I can pass for an NFL guy. Keeps me working hard in the gym Izzy. lol
EP: Lol, well there's a piece of that dream of being a football star that came true!
SG: HA! Iknow right.
EP: Well my man, keep up the great work, keep inspiring us all, and thank you for taking the time to talk.
SG: THANK YOU Izzy! Always a pleasure!
