Last year, MLB’s “There’s Only One October” took the top sport in the Top Sports Commercials of 2008. But this year, the MLB’s amazing “Beyond Baseball” series fell to #3 in the Top Sports Commercials of 2009 countdown, despite being even better than last year’s series.
Why? Because the VERSUS Brand Sports Commercial was even more amazing. From the opening lines to the breathtaking montage of powerful sports moments at the end, this video will give you chills. The commerical is an add for VERSUS cable network to show all the exciting things that happen and why we should watch sports with them. And I gotta say, after this commercial, they have turned me into a VERSUS fan!
Here is the voiceover of the ad set over the thrilling music and the breathtaking sports clip montage:
“Here’s the thing that makes life so interesting.
The theory of evolution claims
only the strong will survive.
maybe so, maybe so
but the theory of competition says:
just because they’re the strong doesn’t mean they can’t get their ass kicked.
see, what every long-shot, come-from-beyond-underdog will tell ya is this:
the other guy may in fact be the favorite, the odds may be stacked against you.
but what the odds don’t know is this isn’t a math test
this is a completely different kind of test
one where passion has a funny way of trumping logic
so before you step up to the starting line
before the whistle blows and the clock starts
just remember, out here, the results don’t always add up
no matter what the stats may say and the experts may think and commentators may have predicted
when the race is on, all bets are off
don’t be surprised if someone decides to flip the script
and take a pass on yelling ‘uncle’
then suddenly, as the old saying goes
‘we’ve got ourselves a game’
