Default In Case You Missed It: Lebron, Dwight's Mcdonald's Super Bowl Ad

Quote:
Broadcast before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIV, Cavaliers' forward LeBron James(notes) and Magic center Dwight Howard(notes) starred in a remake of the iconic 1993 Super Bowl spot "The Showdown," which featured Michael Jordan and Larry Bird in trick-shot competition for some greasy fast food.

The new 2010 version, titled "Check This," pits James against Howard in their own unique 540-spin on the battle for a Big Mac. It also features the reappearance of "Larry Legend," who apparently has been masquerading as The Hamburglar since the mid-80s.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.





The best slamdunk contest we never got to see?

You can't make impossible dunks look more "real" than that.

I think you guys miss the point of the commercial. Its a total spoof of the famous Jordon/Bird McDonalds "NOTHING BUT NET" commercial. I thought it was brilliantly done and putting Larry Legend in it at the end was great.

The part where Dwight says "Hey no layups" just added to it.


In Case you have never seen it
