ESPN/ABC Finally Gets A Promo Right!

Wednesday, May 30, 2007


I got goosebumps wathching ESPN's new ad teasing the NBA Finals. I can't believe they finally got it right....it blows my mind. Old NBA Players warming up- Check!, Gladiator-like music playing in the background- Check!, Afros- Check!, and finally....Kevin McHale stretching sporting a black-eye....CHECK!

Here it is....enjoy!

That promo sure could use some Jeremy Piven.

They should've used this instead of the stupid pussycat dolls song for the entire playoffs.

That doesn't look like McHale - more like Greg Kite.

I can't believe he made it in with the legends highlighted in the commercial.

What - Swen Nader wasn't available?
