Super Bowl Opener Commercial’s

Broadcast before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIV, NBA stars Dwight Howard and LeBron James star in a remake of iconic 1993 Super Bowl commercial The Showdown, which featured hall-of-famers Michael Jordan and Larry Bird in trick-shot competition for a Big Mac and fries. The new commercial titled “Check This” pits James against Howard in their own unique take on the battle for a Big Mac. The TV ad also features the reappearance of Larry Bird. Joe Pytka, commercial director for McDonalds original 1993 Super Bowl spot, also filmed the remake. Check This was filmed in Indianapolis at Conseco Fieldhouse in early January, 2010.

Larry Bird challenges Michael Jordan to a shooting contest for his Big Mac.

Hov kicked off today’s big game with a lil mash-up version of “Run This Town”. Game Time!

Looks like Drake’s obeying his thirst in this new Sprite commercial. The spot has aired during the previews of several movies. It’s been a minute since Sprite’s featured any rappers in their ads. Good to see that they’ve come full circle.
