SUPER BOWL XXVII : The Spotlight : AT LEAST SOMETHING WAS WORTH VIEWING

February 01, 1993|STEVE HORN

Rating the Super Bowl commercials:

* 1. McDonald's--Michael Jordan and Larry Bird play the world's greatest game of H-O-R-S-E.

* 2. Reebok--Shaquille O'Neal auditions for Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton.

* 3. Nike--Air Jordan and Hare Jordan battle the Martians for some basketball shoes.

Seems strange that the best commercials at a Super Bowl were basketball-themed, but the Lay's Tom Landry-Mike Ditka halftime party was an idea that had been done (remember Bird shaving his head) and the Bud Bowl is an idea whose time never came.
