McDonald's Super Bowl Ad?

What does the 2007 Super Bowl have in store for us? The McChronicles doesn't know.

But we do know that, according to MSNBC, the 6th-best EVER Super Bowl ad was from McDonald's. Their review of the legendary, previously-posted-on-The-McChronicles Super Bowl 27 spot goes like this:

#6. McDonald’s “The Showdown” (1993): Michael Jordan and Larry Bird engage in a physics-defying hoops-shooting contest for a Big Mac and fries.

What worked: Every basketball fan knows that Bird would win this contest 10 out of 10 times, but it was still a clever idea with a catchphrase that continues to pop up in “Horse” games. (“Over the second rafter, off the floor … nothing but net.”)

The results: This commercial seems to have blessed everyone involved. Jordan won three more championships and Bird transitioned into a solid career as a coach. And while salads and chicken products have been killing off the rest of the menu, the cholesterol-heavy Big Mac value meal remains an untouchable fast-food staple.

Honestly, we're still hankerin' to see Ronald bust the Burger King. Let's REEBOK BK! It would be so sweet.
