Axe Apollo: Bryce Drew’s Buzzer Beater Is Upstaged By An Astronaut

It’s that magical time of year again…March Madness. Brackets, Cinderellas, and most importantly, a reasonable excuse to start drinking at noon on a weekday. In 1998, Valparaiso University’s Bryce Drew hit a buzzer beater to upset Ole Miss. It was one of the most memorable moments in NCAA Tournament history, and now 15 years later, Bryce Drew is the head coach of Valpo, who will try to shock Michigan State. And now Axe Apollo has a new commercial capitalizing on this shot. It’s in a similar vein to Axe’s Super Bowl spot…meaning that the real action is amusingly overshadowed by an astronaut. Nothing beats an astronaut ever, apparently.
