How come this Under Armour jersey looks like an old Nike one?

Stephen Curry is a sponsor for Brita. I didn’t know that until I saw this tweet from a colleague of mine. That’s good for Curry as he’s getting his fame and exposure out there.

But from these screenshots, I noticed one thing that stood out to me. Look at the jersey he’s wearing. And now look at this old template design from Nike. It looks very similar.

Draymond Green’s new Beats By Dre commercial throws shade at James Harden

Remember when James Harden said that the Warriors weren’t that good? That caused a big stir during the regular season as the Warriors won all four games they had against the Rockets by double-figures. Entering this Western Conference finals, that was the talk of the series as people were reminded that Harden had dismissed the Warriors as a good team.

With the Warriors up 2-0 on the Rockets in the series, Beats By Dre released this new commercial in which a reporter mentioned the exact same scenario among (without mentioning Harden’s name) other thoughts from supposed haters of Draymond Green. In classic Beats style, Green put on his headphones and walked away from the onslaught of media questions.

The commercial takes a jab at Harden and the Rockets and with the Warriors now 6-0 against them this year, it’s just icing on the cake to a quote from months ago that is still being talked about.  Green probably doesn’t care what Harden said, but for the commercial, it’s good TV to remind Harden about his foolish words.

Also mentioned in the commercial is his size and his mother. Check out the commercial above.

Katy Perry’s sharks make ESPN commercial

Riding the popularity of the sharks from the Super Bowl, we have this. This isn’t too funny, but hey, it’s an attention grabber.

The Gatorade 50th anniversary commercial is amazing

Even though this commercial debuted last week, I just watched it for the first time. I think this is a very creative commercial. The history of sports and Gatorade’s influence all in one package. I love it.

Here is a breakdown for all the numbers.

Colin Kaepernick’s Beats by Dre commercial really makes Seahawks fans look uncivil

I suppose if you want to portray the image that the headphones blocks out the outside noise, it works. Although I would think that the fans (who are wearing Seattle neon green) would be a bit more civil.

But of course, you wouldn’t be selling and marketing something well if you weren’t over the top, right?

Well, at least one thing is for certain: This commercial alienates the Seattle market. But I’m sure they’ll find a way to make it up to them.

This Dikembe Mutombo GEICO commercial brings joy to my heart

Who doesn’t love Dikembe Mutombo? He has a huge heart, a really deep raspy voice and one of the premier shot blockers of our generation.

Add in GEICO, one of the best advertisers today, and we get this magical commercial.

After his Old Spice magic last year, Dikembe outdoes himself again.

NBC is so excited that hockey is back that they don’t remember what happened last season

Hockey returns this weekend and I am really excited. The lockout was a bummer but I an live with that as long as I get my hockey back.

NBA is promoting the season too and this latest commercial should get really juiced up about the Flyers getting their revenge on the Penguins for their playoff loss that last year.

But wait, didn’t the Flyers eliminate the Pens in the playoffs? Yes they did. So either NBC themselves just got their facts wrong on a series they broadcasted or maybe they just don’t think we can tell the difference.
