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.




Priceline: Learn Your Life Lessons From David Robinson, Not Latrell Sprewell

This Priceline commercial has been out for 3 months now, and it’s from the same campaign as the one with the scammed grandma. If you use Priceline to book a basketball-centered trip to San Antonio, you might just get inspiring life advice from Hall of Famer and all-around great guy David Robinson. If you don’t, you might end up getting terrible life advice at a bar from Latrell Sprewell. “Spree”, of course, was a good player whose success was overshadowed by an infamous incident where he choked his coach in practice. He also retired after turning down a 3 year/$21 million contract saying “I have a family to feed.” And “success is just failure that hasn’t happened yet” is a pretty bad lesson to teach a young child. At least Latrell can make fun of himself.
