AT&T Says “Just OK” March Madness Announcers Are Not OK

AT&T continues with their “Just OK Is Not OK” campaign, and since they’re a major sponsor of the NCAA Tournament, these spots are March Madness-themed. The campaign presents scenarios where it would be wrong for things to be “just OK”, though examples they show are much, much worse than OK.  These have an announcing duo, with play-by-play guy Ken, and clueless color commentator Phil. AT&T has a huge number of these on their YouTube page, so I’ll just post some highlights. There’s one where Phil misunderstands when he’s asked to give some insight about his time as a player. Phil also thinks a guy who got a rebound is actually on the rebound, and shouts out “Freebird!” to the band. And goofy Phil thinks his job as the color commentator is to actually comment on colors…which he does quite well in describing Purdue’s hues. Haha. Mark Neely plays Ken, and Phil is played by Tim Baltz.

AT&T/DirecTV During March Madness…You Won’t Miss A Thing

These AT&T/DirecTV spots are alternately funny and stupid/annoying…which might be what they’re going for. There’s the Purdue fan parking booth attendant who’s missing their game, and they’re tied at the half with a mid-major school. Interestingly, Purdue was only leading by 1 at halftime in their first round matchup against Vermont, a mid-major. Then there are the poor people stuck in a sales review, despite a buttload of games. Dan Finnerty is the singer, and he’s crooning a parody of Aerosmith’s sappy #1 hit “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”
