Latest Air Jordans Commercial - Jumpman XXI

There's a really cool shoe commercial making the rounds for the Michael Jordan shoe line. It's a 60 second spot with a variety of youngsters playing ball, doing some of the signature Jordan moves.

  • There's the one hand dunk that's pulled down for the hook layup from the 1991 NBA Finals against the Lakers (the “Oh, a spectacular move!” play)
  • There's Jordan's “I dunno what's up?“ shurg after hitting all those 3s in a row in the 1992 NBA Finals against Portland
  • There's the free-throw line dunk from the All Star weekend dunk content
  • There's the pushoff on Russell for hitting the game-winning shot in the 1998 Finals against the Jazz
  • And more...

There's no talking, it's all set to some creschendoing electric piano/snare drums beats in the background. It's a great way to reminisce about some exciting Jordan moments from various stages in his career. For some MJ highlights, just search Google Videos for “Michael Jordan” - there are a number of highlight reels and assorted montages put together by fans, including:

  • MJ's Top 10 Dunks (dunk #8's from the Jumpman XXI commercial, perhaps, although IIRC there was a dunk that looked a lot like that from a dunk contest; #2 has the most meaning for me of those dunks in the video, as it's one from the heated Bulls/Knicks playoff rivalry... probably the most intense playoff series I've ever watched... the highs and lows throughout were unbelievable...)
  • The Be Like Mike Gatorade commercial circa 1992
  • And more!

Check it out...
