Tuesday Throwback: Sprite Cools Down Summer Hoops
February 12, 2013 Leave a comment
And we’re back! I thought about this commercial today as I was drinking a can of Sprite. I’ve already written about a Sprite commercial on Tuesday Throwback, so I guess they have really memorable retro ads. Anyway, I think I remember this one playing a lot in the summer. ’06-07 maybe? It says it was uploaded in October 2006, so that might be right. I really like the visuals. You can totally see the sweltering summer sun and heat in that urban basketball court. I hope that’s water they’re jumping into, not Sprite. That would be sticky. Of course, the commercial is made by the chill, smooth song. It’s “Falling Away” by Hugh Wilson. I always thought it was “Falling Awake” (i.e. I’m falling awake with you), but apparently not.
