The NFL stole the Super Bowl commercial game last year with its remake of Dirty Dancing featuring Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr.
In an action-packed commercial that aired just before halftime at Super Bowl LIII, the NFL’s biggest legends and most popular players gathered to celebrate the league’s 100th season in the spot aptly titled “The 100-Year Game.”
The commercial included an all-star cast of 44 retired and active players who turn a ballroom into a football frenzy. The cast includes Terry Bradshaw, Tony Gonzalez, Von Miller, Franco Harris, Marshawn Lynch, Larry Fitzgerald, Deion Sanders, Michael Strahan, Peyton Manning and more.
As commissioner Roger Goodell made a speech, the players all scrambled after a fumble. In an ad of highlights, one of the best moments was Patriots legend Tom Brady handing his rings to NFL newbie Baker Mayfield.
The commercial is meant to kick off the league’s year-long campaign to celebrate the NFL’s centennial season.
The commercial was universally praised on Twitter, and it looks like the league has a winner.
While the Super Bowl itself didn’t deliver a ton of hits and scoring drives, NFL 100 made for some great nostalgia.
