"It's a one-shot ad - 30 seconds. We've got two cranes, 12 players - four pros - all of whom have to be synchronised and choreographed perfectly. We've got one day to shoot this, but in reality we've got four hours, because the professionals are only here for that time," said executive producer Rob Steiner in a making-of clip (below).

The 30-second spot features Euroleague basketball stars Shawn James, Kyle Hines, Robin Benzing and Sergio Rodriguez.
