When Cam Met Tom: An Under Armour Bro Story

We’ve already mentioned the “Footsteps” campaign that twofifteenmccann (formerly agencytwofifteen, which was formerly T.A.G.) concocted for Under Armour, but here’s an additional asset you might have missed, featuring arguably the best QB in the league and the most overhyped top draft pick in years. What happens when Cam Newton meets Tom Brady? Well, watch the clip, which was directed by Friday Night Lights creator (and let’s not forget The Great White Hype star) Peter Berg, and let the bond between two generations unfold. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for football season to begin.

Kevin Costner Lends Voice to MLB Opening Day Spot

In just 13 days, Major League Baseball and the boys of summer will kick off their 2011 season. With the NFL heading for a lockout, it just might be baseball’s big year to reclaim the title as “America’s Game,” and really, when was the last time you saw this much patriotism crammed into a 30-second television spot? What about Obama and Bush throwing out pitches back-to-back? Everyone’s happy.

The guys at W+K got Mr. Field of Dreams himself, actor Kevin Costner, to give the ad a little celebrity push. Aside from making a movie about the sport every two years, Costner co-owns a northern Illinois independent league team and regularly visits University of Texas games and practices. Generic-sounding voice notwithstanding, he is the Hollywood personification of baseball, and the right man to give the league his endorsement.

Not into the MLB? Look at it this way: once March Madness subsides, the Bulls win the NBA championship and the NFL lockout is official, baseball is all we have. And, until we fix the BCS and take away Cam Newton‘s Heisman Trophy, NCAA football will always disappoint. If you’re looking for a bandwagon to jump on this year, word has it that the Milwaukee Brewers finally got themselves some pitching. Credits after the jump.

The BCS National Championship: Now in 3D!

You’ve experienced this “American football” thing before on your TV with mixed to positive results. If you’ve become a fan of the game from the confines of your living room, why not make an impulsive purchase today and buy one of those Sony 3D televisions in time for tonight’s BCS National Championship?

Just imagine watching Oregon’s duck mascot flying at your children while they fetch you a beer. Or, imagine seeing Auburn quarterback Cam Newton dive over tacklers to score a touchdown followed by a celebratory dance right in front of your couch. Come to think of it, The Vault NYC and production company Nice Shoes may have found the perfect market for their client. If your disgraced father tried to sell you off to competing universities at a substantially higher price than a college scholarship, odds are he’s watching the game from home as NCAA rulings limit him access to your school’s athletic department. Luckily for him, the Sony 3D TV doesn’t judge its viewers, and your father and his best 3D-goggled buds can watch you sprint into college football history books anyway.

Credits after the jump.
