Kris Humphries Continues to Try to Save Face by Poking Fun at Himself, This Time in a Foot Locker Ad

After his disastrous, 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries was relegated to some sort of newfound hall of shame, reserved for athletes who have married a Kardashian and then had the marriage fail after a mortifyingly short period of time. He's tried to get himself out of that hall by doing some acting -- he already portrayed himself in several Funny or Die videos -- and now, he's moved on to commercials.

In a new ad for Foot Locker, Humphries makes fun of himself by playing the guy whose entourage no one wants to be a part of. He plays opposite the Houston Rockets' James Harden, who tells a member of his own entourage that if he's not careful, he'll get traded to hang out with Humphries.

It's not entirely clear why Humphries is still trying to save face. He might have better luck just letting everyone forget about his ill-fated nuptials.

Still, to his credit, while he's not winning any Oscars for his performance, it's also not a complete abomination.
