We all remember those mid ’90s commercials with Lil’ Penny, and how hilarious they were. Seriously, was there anything funnier that the loud-mouth, mini-sidekick who bugged and annoyed Anfernee Hardaway? Well, sounds like the duo might be making a comeback

Penny Hardaway and Chris Rock reunited last night on The Bottom Line Sports Show where they revealed the potential comeback of Lil’ Penny for the release of Hardaway’s Nike Air Penny 5 sneakers. The Bottom Line Sports Show got the details straight from the two Penny voices themselves:

When asked about his interest in working with Hardaway and Nike to bring the hilarious puppet back to life, Rock responded with:

“let’s do it!”

Rock and Hardaway made history with the rambunctious Lil’ Penny character in a series of Nike shoe commercials from 1994-1998. Rock, also commented on how influential the commercial was on the sneaker culture:

“I am extremely grateful that Penny approved my participation in the commercials. He is a quiet and cool guy so Lil’ Penny was the perfect alter ego.”

Hardaway followed by saying:

“We just had fun with it and people really loved what we did with the character.”…“I knew Lil’ Penny was going to be a hit when they said Chris Rock would be the voice. He is a genius at what he does and people love comedy.” 

Lil’ Penny cannot be duplicated. We were apart of some of the best commercials in sports history.”

Who could disagree with that proclamation? I know I’m excited for a potential reunion of Lil’ Penny!
