Remember the great Michael Jordan commercial with Larry Bird, where the two play HORSE? Not only are they going to remake the commercial with Lebron James and Dwight Howard (Dwight Howard????? Playing HORSE?????), but CNBC has the story of how the original commercial was made.
(If you don’t remember the commercial, here it is.)
The best part? When Bird was in the stands and challenged Jordan, The Legend was actually trying to decide if he could make it off the scoreboard.
The second-best part? Larry didn’t want any scenes to be edited.
Here’s a brief excerpt:
“Larry added the line, No Dunking. Then the two took the first two shots (over the backboard and on their knees). After that, it was just editing though Larry didn’t necessarily want to do it that way. When the two of them are in the stands and Larry challenges Michael, Larry was actually trying to figure out if he could really make it off the scoreboard.”
Check out the rest of the story. It’s pretty cool.
