Yep, we still want to be like Mike.
Gatorade is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a digitally remastered "Be Like Mike" ad. The commercial originally aired in the summer of 1991, right after the Chicago Bulls won their first of six titles.
Reminisce by watching 29-year-old Michael Jordan shoot hoops and drink gatorade with your own special bottle of MJ's favorite flavor, Citrus Cooler. The drink will be available with a "retro" label at the end of March.
"In celebration of 50 years of fueling champions, Gatorade presents the iconic Be Like Mike commercial featuring the one, the only, Michael Jordan," the YouTube description of the commercial, which will air this weekend, reads.
According to ESPN, the Gatorade crew couldn't be more excited about the return of "Be Like Mike."
"The return of Gatorade's iconic 'Be Like Mike' commercial during NBA All-Star Weekend is the perfect complement to our brand's continued 50th anniversary celebration in 2015," Gatorade chief marketing officer Morgan Flatley reportedly said in a statement. "What better way to celebrate our first athlete spokesman, Michael Jordan; the NBA, one of Gatorade's longest tenured partners; and the national revival of one of MJ's favorite Gatorade flavors, Citrus Cooler.”
