EXCLUSIVE: See How NBA Superstar Kevin Durant and His Mom Stay Close with Cisco ūmi

- May 13, 2011 - 1 Comment

What did everyone do for Mother’s Day? Were you lucky enough to celebrate with your mom in person? Or did you have to find a creative way to get in touch with her, similar to what NBA player Kevin Durant did?

Kevin, a forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder, praises Cisco ūmi’s ability to keep him closer to his mom: “For a second I had to stop myself because I wanted to get up and give her a hug.”

In never-before-seen videos exclusive for ūmi fans, check out how Kevin and his mom are using Cisco ūmi to stay connected despite Kevin living halfway across the U.S.  And stay tuned later this spring for additional content created just for ūmi fans from Cisco’s partnership with the NBA.

Kevin and his mom aren’t the only ones using Cisco ūmi to keep in touch. Cisco and ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” recently teamed up to give the Prewitt-Brewer family a new way to be together. With Cisco ūmi outfitted in their new living room, Carrie Prewitt, her mom and the three girls she adopted can keep in touch with her brother, Rick, and his family in Chicago.

Want to be able to keep in touch with your loved ones just like Kevin Durant and the Prewitt-Brewer family? Now through May 21, when you buy one ūmi, you’ll get a second one free, making it easier to stay connected!
