Muh-Tay-Zik | Hof-fer Launches New Golden State Warriors Spot, ‘Fast Break’

San Francisco-based agency MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER just launched “Fast Break,” the third installment in their#WeAreWarriors campaign for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, featuring real-life fans and Golden State Warriors players.

“Fast Break” features Warriors forward Harrison Barnes dunking over fan Romel Marquez of SEC 213, ROW 12 ((just barely, though, as dude almost took a crotch to the face). Everyone likes to see fans interact with their favorite players, imaging the excitement they must be feeling meeting one of their favorite athletes and getting a kind of vicarious thrill through that, and referring to the fans’ seat number is a nice touch. It makes the leap from the ad to the action on the court, while suggesting a connection between the team and its most devoted fans.

“Fast Break” follows on the heels of “Assist” and “A Little Help,” which kicked off the #WeAreWarriors campaign at the beginning of the season. “Ice Bath” will follow and conclude the campaign. Stick around for credits and “Assist,” starring Klay Thompson, after the jump.
