If you’re reading this, you are probably familiar with the Vitamin Water advertisement and Nike puppet advertisements featuring Lebron James and Kobe Bryant that have been running throughout this year’s NBA playoffs. Both ad campaigns were somewhat criticized since they seemed to assume that the two would face off in the NBA finals.
Well, now that the NBA Finals is featuring Kobe vs. Dwight Howard; both companies have created new ad-spots to make up for this fact. My favorite is this Dwight Howard commercial, which probably took a grand total of 10 minutes to shoot and edit (it is still clever and funny nonetheless).
Nike ran an ad last night featuring puppet version LeBron James in his apartment without Kobe as the little kid next door peppers him with questions about Kobe. (Sorry, this blogger could not find a copy for you on YouTube.)
