AND 1 - Quickness (2007) 0:60 (USA)

Ad and design firm 72andSunny has just come out with a new ad campaign for basketball apparel company AND 1 that provides an intimate look at up-and-coming NBA player Monta Ellis, point guard and shooting guard for Oakland«s Golden State Warriors (Monta is also quoted in the press release below.)

72andSunny designed the Monta Ellis/AND 1 website, retail materials, and produced 13 spots viewable online at http://www.and1.com/monta. The commercials broke on ESPN2 yesterday. The ads are shot in a documentary style and star Monta and his close-knit circle of friends and family, and were shot during the player«s annual family reunion in Jackson, Mississippi.

The commercials, like Monta himself, are down-to-earth and genuine, and are refreshingly different than typical slick and overproduced sports advertising campaigns.

The spot "Quickness" looks at from whom Monta Ellis inherited his ability.
