It's basketball season. College hoops are in full swing and the NBA is half through their season. So, what better time to show one of the best basketball commercials ever. The stars of this McDonald's commercial are two Hall-of-Famers, none other than Michael Jordan and Larry Bird.


Why it's good

We get to see two of our all-time favorite basketball players having fun engaging in a game of "horse". Many of us have played "horse" and know some of the tough shots we have been forced to take. We have two of the best trying to out do each other for Michael's lunch, a Big Mac and fries. It's just plain fun.

Was it successful?

This is ranked as one of the best commercials ever produced. Not only does it include some great facial expressions from two of our favorite athletes of the day, it also includes a term that is still used to this day "Nothing but Net". It has well over a million views on You Tube. In fact it was so popular it was done again with LaBron James and Dwight Howard. Check it out on You Tube. Let me know which one you like better.
