Chris Gray, Philadelphia’s celeb entrepreneur, was in some fine company during the Cadillac commercial that aired during the Oscars last night.

The Scholly founder, whose star has only been rising since his appearance on ABC’s “Shark Tank” last year, was featured alongside wunderkinds like Justus Williams, who became the second African-American chess grandmaster at 16, and Morgan DeBaum, the 25-year-old founder of media company Blavity. Most of the people the commercial highlights are people of color.
