Meet Walter Tavares. He Does Commercials

The Hawks drafted Walter Tavares in the second round of the NBA Draft Thursday night. He's unique in that he has only played basketball for five years, and he's 7'3" with a 7'9" wingspan.
Tavares is also a semi-regular in Spanish commercials, or so it would seem.
A quick Internet search produced these two gems, the first one featuring the 7'3" big man climbling into a Toyota Yaris (after simply resting his elbow on the roof!), and the second shows him appearing (briefly, pay attention at the :09 mark) for a city bus commercial.
