Capital One March Madness: Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson, And Spike Lee Go To Texas

March Madness is back, which also means the return of one of the most beloved ad campaigns. That’s right…it’s time for more Capital One March Madness, with Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson, and Spike Lee. This year, the Final Four will be in San Antonio, so the ads focus on their travels in Texas (#FanAntonio). Chuck is excited about the “A La Mode”, while Sam and Spike inform him that it’s the Alamo (and it doesn’t serve ice cream). Charles also calls an armadillo a “turtle rat.” “The Three Muskamigos” wear goofy Western attire, and sing “Friends In Low Places” while on horseback.  These are just some of the spots from this always entertaining campaign.

Capital One And Spotify Partner To Have Samuel L. Jackson Croon “Let’s Stay Together”

It’s not as good as Capital One’s March Madness campaign, but still pretty entertaining. The song, of course, is Al Green’s classic “Let’s Stay Together.” Take it away, Sam.

Capital One: Charles Barkley Wears A Snack Hoodie and Layers

Capital One’s “This is March Madness” campaign starring Charles Barkley, Samuel L. Jackson, and Spike Lee is always a big hit. I wrote about a few of the delightful spots last weekend, and here are some more. We see Charles Barkley wearing a snack hoodie for easy munchie access, and dressing in puffy layers for every situation. The tremendous trio also misses a buzzer beater because of Chuck’s Clapper. And in the Phoenix airport, Sir Charles discovers that adoring crowds are more interested in Jim Nantz.

 

Samuel L. Jackson, Charles Barkley, And Spike Lee Sing “I Will Survive” For Capital One

Simply delightful. The flight attendant is Gloria Gaynor, the original singer of “I Will Survive.” Also delightful is another spot where they eat steaks…on a plane. Though Samuel L. seems less amused.

Zooey Deschanel and Samuel L. Jackson Use iPhone’s Siri For Boring Things Too

I guess that’s the point…that despite being much richer and more interesting than us, celebrities do mundane stuff too. First, Zooey Deschanel. This makes a lot of sense, since a lot of Apple’s core cult fans are hipsters, and Zooey Deschanel is like a goddess to hipsters. I find Zooey a little adorable, but mostly just annoying. And Samuel L. Jackson. He’s awesome, but this being a national commercial, he can’t be profane, which is a little unfortunate. Though “hotspacho” is a fun word he spouts off while preparing for date night. It’s also notable that both Zooey and Sam have tomato soup related plans.
