I loved the old Larry Johnson "Yo Grand Mama" commercials for his converse shoes. Classic.

Love the Bird vs Jordan shooting competition advertisement...off the wall, off the roof, off the off the glass etc etc...nothing but net.

There was a Pepsi commercial once in a playground. Most of the little kids bolted when they saw Shaq enter. He went up to one little kid and was going to his Pepsi from him.

The child said "Don't even think about it" Shaq turns to the camera stunned. Then he says "please" to the child and he's still told no.

That one was good.

The 2 LC mentioned were also brilliat.

lol.

The Macca's Bird v Jordan shootout was a classic:

"Hey Michael, what've you got there?"
"Big Mac... Fries..."
"Want to shoot for 'em?"
"...Sure".

The LJ Converse ads of Granmamma doing the "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe" Advert.

Just LG as an old woman doing power dunks inside a giant converse shoe. Gold!

The Reebok add with two teams of Shaquille O'Neals was pretty good. Score was in the high hundreds after several OT's.

Another great one was Shaq as a rookie breaking the backboard, with Kareem, Walton, Wilt and Bill Russell getting him to sweep up the glass.

Anyone remember the 'Little Shorty Rock' Reebok Street commercial? Tiny guy wins a dunk comp, but you could see a mini-tramp in the picture? ha ha

Agree the McDonalds advert was probably the best:

And has everyone seen the remake of the classic Bird/Jordan Big Mac commercial with Dwight and LeBron.
