Well, it looks like Dwight Howard now has some puppies to add to his collection of children and snakes.
The Rockets have enlisted the help of a variety of puppies to help secure All-Star Game votes, calling it the "Bark the Vote" campaign. Now seems like a good time to remind you that the guy who made the emoji joke about shooting a horse got fired.
The center of the advertising campaign is the two Rockets All-Star hopefuls, James Harden, and Dwight Howard, making kissy faces with baby Cliffords. And, to juxtapose the already-ridiculous premise that puppies are more likely to earn Harden and Howard All-Star votes, they shot videos in slow-motion with hype jams from Kanye West and the Black Keys.
We have exclusively obtained some footage of Dwight Howard after the photoshoot.
