McDonalds: LeBron vs. Howard – Jordan vs. Bird Remake*

26 03 2011

Similar to last years Pepsi re-make of the classic “Diner” TV-ad, McDonalds re-visited one of its classic NBA Basketball ads for the 2011 SuperBowl

In 1993 Michael Jordan and Larry Bird battled over the Big Mac in a hilarious “Shoot-Out”. The 2011 version features LeBron James and Dwight Howard in a dunking contest.

The classic  MJ vs. Bird shoot-out is among my favourite TV ads so I am not quite sure whether I like the re-make…judge for yourself…
