Lakers’ Alex Caruso stars in hilarious Manscaped commercial
Los Angeles Lakers point guard has certainly come a long way since entering the NBA.
From an unassuming guard out of Texas A&M who went undrafted in the 2016 Draft, Caruso is now an NBA champion and an important part of the Lakers’ title defense. Off the court, the 26-year-old has also received endorsement deals that usually come when playing in one of the league’s biggest markets.
Less than a week after securing a multi-year shoe deal with Chinese sneaker brand Anta, Caruso is now also an endorser of Manscaped and starred in a hilarious commercial that used innuendo to get its point across.

Caruso isn’t the only player for the Purple and Gold to be an endorser for Manscaped, with former teammate and current Philadelphia 76ers guard Danny Green also promoting the product on his Instagram page last year, with his current and former teammates laughing at the viral video.
But in contrast with the direct approach of Green’s endorsement of the product, Caruso’s commercial took a subtler approach, but will likely also have his Lakers teammates sharing a laugh once they watch it.
The former G-League player remains a vital cog for a Lakers team that is missing big man Anthony Davis due to injury and guard Dennis Schroder due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Los Angeles has lost three straight games in their absence and will look to bounce back against the league-leading Utah Jazz on Wednesday.
But even though they’re struggling on the court right now, Caruso’s shoe deal and now a commercial proves that he’s had a good week and is living his best life.
