I like the Melo commercial and the gatorade one where they edit Jordan so he misses the shot against the Cavs. What do you guys like?

Rob Thomas! He just sang that song on the American Music Awards 5 minutes ago! However, I'm not sure of the name of the song.

Edited to add it's called Ever The Same.

I like Dwayne Wade's Commercial....Fall 7 times....Stand up 8.
That's a good one, as is the AI injuries one. 10 years taking that kind of pounding. Its unbelieveable.

I like Carmelo's. B More. Great concept.

I enjoyed Wade's the first 10 times i seen it, that was in one night.

I like the Gatorade one where they edit The Shot by MJ and a few other famous sports moments, but I've only seen it once.

I know a lot of people hate it, but I also liked the full version of the Adidas T-Mac commercial. The shorter versions aren't as good.

Converse's Wade commerical is pretty good, as is Reebok's Answer IX.

EDIT: Of course, the TNT Ali G spots are better than any of these - that goes without saying.

The gatorade "edit" commercial is fantastic

the melo spot is the best of the ones i've seen. great concept. really well executed.

the tmac spot is so over-produced it just seems like adidas is giving him an expensive hand job.

the d wade spot is nice, if not a little pedestrian. fall down, get up, big deal.

the gatorade spot is an instant classic. it really makes you stop and watch it.

really like the AI spot too. but the one that ran this summer of him in the pool hall talking about himself and the game was better than the trainers room spot.

i also think the shaq spot for the game (can't remember if it's nba 2k or what) is very funny with him in the fruit section jamming the honeydew melon! hilarious expression on his face.

i laughed the first time i saw the ali g spots with kobe and steve nash. wish they'd done more in that campaign with other players.

***

and this has been driving me NUTS since i should know this song, but what is the track that plays underneath the NBA on ESPN spots?? the ones that have the very groovy seventies graphics with the tag line "that's why we watch". it's driving me crazy. i think those spots are kinda cool too.

The Ali G commercials by far. You just can't get entertainment like that in 30 seconds anywhere else.

They should run some more, but use Borat instead, can you imagine him interviewing AK47?

That D-Wade spot is nice! Shows he tough! No matter how many times he gets knocked down, he gets back up and keeps going. It's all about persistence and perseverance.

the tmac commercial is probably the best nba commercial since jordan in his day. anyone who thinks otherwise is racist against yao, OR is just a plain hater.
