This season, the Wizards have some of the better commercials I’ve seen be produced for the team in a long time … perhaps ever.
One of the well-shot cityscape spots features Antawn Jamison at the Stead Recreation Center, another with Caron Butler under Whitehurst Freeway. There’s one with Andray Blatche doing something, can’t recall what at the moment.
Then there’s the most recent spot featuring Mike Miller, seen on the Comcast broadcast of the Miami game. The commercial shows ‘It is what it is’ Mike driving through the city and jogging in the shadows of D.C. landmarks as he talks about proving himself in a new city. He has … when he’s been healthy.
At the end, Miller shows how serious he is about the well-being of the franchise, staring into the camera as if to say, “Wizards Holiday Packs are the heart and soul of kindred spirits behind the mean-mug expression of concern I am so eloquently and thought-provokingly providing you with at this frozen moment in time.”
Miller is more serious about holiday packs than he was for social networking. His look reaches from the inner depths and pleads to the recipient, “Hey little bro, trust me, I’ve done all of those unsavory things that you wanna try. Now don’t … but do go buy a Wizards Holiday Pack. ”
Do you need any further convincing?
