Nike Football AD

Postby jlm53089 » Mon Sep 17, 2007 10:28 pm

Am I the only one who thinks that is the coolest Ad on TV?
The one with Shawn Merriman and Stephen Jackson.

But is it cursed?
Think about it, LT was in the last one and he is doing poorly, Shawn Merriman is in it and the Chargers are free falling, Stephen Jackson is in it and he is off to a slow start.

and my last question...
what is the name of the song that plays during it?

Good commercial. ;-D

I took another look at the commercial on YouTube to hear the song. Sounds like it's from a familiar movie. I want to say The Last of the Mohicans. :-?
Not sure who composes it though.

The Chargers are free falling? They're 1-1 against two teams who combined to go 25-7 last season.

Nope, you're not alone. I think it's really cool too. :-) ;-D

I really liked this commercial when I first saw it, but now it starts to get annoying when you sit down to watch a game and see it seven times. It is overplayed but still good.

Originally I thought this was a John Williams song, but it was written by a guy named Trevor Jones.

The music in Last of the Mohicans is one of the main reasons it's among my favorite movies. They played different arrangements of that piece throughout the movie.

I only own three "motion picture soundtracks:"

1. Last of the Mohicans
2. Gladiator
3. Road to Perdition

;-D

Oh wait... I also have the Spawn soundtrack. What can I say? I was a partier at the time. :-b

Anyway, that's probably the best cut on the soundtrack. That's the music from the final fight scene in the movie, which is probably the most dramatic scene in the entire movie. Shame they ended right at the best part. Another good cut from that CD is the only vocal track. I believe it's either the last or next to last track. It's from the scene just before the final fight scene, when they're following the girls' captor's tracks up a very rocky and wooded terrain.

Great. Now I want to go watch the movie again. :-[
