Y2K Commercials (SportCenter)greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I will say this about Y2K..it has spawned some of the funniest commercials I have ever seen. Nikes the best, but I just saw this jewel.
Sportscenter commercial features a Sportcenter Y2K test. All the moniters go blank, alarms go off, cheerleaders and mascots run wild, Mark McGuire starts beating a keyboard and moniter with a baseball bat, one of the commentators, tie tied around his head rambo style and oil lamp in his hand shouts "Follow me to Freedom!". The director says "Went well, just a few glitches" and last scene is the two anchors at their sportscenter desk, covered with candles, trying to do a show. It really was fun. Mark McGuire's fix was great.

I've only seen the Nike ad once. Did it get pulled, or am I just missing it?

Haven't seen the Sportcenter one yet but taped the Nike one and watch it 4 or 5 times a day. Probably the closest thing to the truth you can see on TV. Sportcenter, isn't that ESPN?

Yes, it is ESPN. It's a good spot but the Nike one is up there with 'Gone With The Wind' and 'Citizen Kane'.
