Oreo has a new ad out featuring two young men playing basketball. The smaller baller delivers an elbow to the face of his opponent, and, well, see what happens next in the ad…
I will include a higher quality video of the commercial once Oreo uploads. For now, here is some fun info…
The Music. The ad features the first 10 seconds of a song called “Rise” by Gift of Gab. The song was released in 2012. Check out the full track below.
The bruised brother. The older kid who gets a black eye is Arlo Buchanan. He’s an actor with a few notable credits to his young career. Click here for more of his bio.
The shot. Some might be wondering, like I was, did the shot go in? Based on a breakdown of a still shot, my assessment is that the shot did not go in. I repeat, the shot did NOT go in.
The foul. In league play, who would get penalized with the foul? In my experience and with a little research, I would say this was unintentional so no foul called. If there is a foul, it would go against the shooter for leading with the elbow.
Thanks for stopping by!
