NBC uses Michael Jordan for Brady vs. Rodgers promo
29 October 2018 00:55
NBC may have just dropped the greatest commercial in the history of television.
Yes, that sounds like an exaggeration, but consider the moment. NBC is airing the Vikings vs. Saints in a rematch of the wild NFC Divisional game that spawned the Minnesota Miracle. Add in the fact that Drew Brees came into this game without having thrown a single interception in the 2018 season while Adam Thielen is on a record pace with his 100-yard receiving games. Millions of viewers are tuned in for this game, and then NBC just subtly drops a promo to advertise the Packers and Patriots game next Sunday. Oh, and it features Michael Jordan.
"A lot of talk going on these days about who is the greatest ever," Jordan says during the first few moments of the promo. "About who has the titles, the raw talent, the clutch moments. I get it. It's a tough call" At this point, everyone is expecting him to talk about the comparisons between himself and Lebron James. Nope, Jordan is actually talking about Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Just watch the promo in its entirety below:
