A Beardly Awesome way to meet James Harden and play some hoops with him.

It's the beard. And that means beardsketball. We provided mass access to James, and his most well-known feature, by turning it into a Weird Beards sour gummi, and then turning it into a full-on activation with James' busy beard as a basketball net.

James encourages and/or trash talks through a digitally programmed backboard.

Launched at a Houston Rockets game, Beardsketball gave fans, and viewers at home, a chance to experience taking on Mr. Harden one-on-one.

A social microsite for sending Harden sweet and sour smack talk.

An Instagram challenge, #BeardlyAwesome takeovers and Weird Beard power-ups were just part of the game plan.
