Back in the day commercials that made you wanna ball
Remember when the old basketball commercials made you wanna ball so hard right after they came on? Now a days basketball commercials are kinda weak and nondescript, companies need to step their marketing games up and come out with something fresh that makes people wanna ball out. Here are a couple commercials that after I saw them it was mando I picked up a ball :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBVqX2cmVtY - Nike freestyle commercials, after these came out everyone was practicing at least one of these moves the next day.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6WQLvRvtjs - Jordan vs Jordan, coulda dunked, shoulda dunked
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9yQaGj46Nw - Jordan 21, little kids balling
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGGZB0FSox4 - VC vs GP

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzRETxxyFJk - space boots
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8lhH-K1X74 - you know penny had her blowing more than bubbles
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNtjGWfnQeA - doesn't make you wanna play ball but its pretty funny
These are just some of my favs, there's a lot I couldn't find and I know I forgot some, so post your favs love to hear/see what you guys think
nice finds.. i remember a lot of those.
when i use to play ball i use to always love to watch jordan's 23 vs 39 video before games. it always pumped me up..
another one i use to watch and think about when i was playing was this one..
and this one..
Reebok had a straight hood squad on there team back in the day
I forgot about that Tmac one, but its def on point I used to love that song back in the day
Generally, I find Jordan commercials to be awesome. There are so many great ones, and they just pump you up.
The only others I immediately thought of that weren't listed by anyone else yet are this JO-Truth Nike commercial, and the Mozart's Lacrimosa commercial that follows.
The Nike Fun Police was the best! They need to bring the Fun Police back, with KD!!!!! My fav. was when KG, Porter and Tim Hardaway, went to a H.S. and checked into the game to bring the fans sprits up!! Awesome!
Allen Iverson debut Reebok The Answer shoes. This commercial just wanted me to go outside and copy the move growing up.
