Gatorade pays homage to Michael Jordan with new “Be Like Mike” Ad

If you grew up loving Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, then you’re familiar with the Gatorade campaign “Be Like Mike” that ran during the 90’s. The commercial featured Jordan and the catching jingle that would get stuck in your head upon hearing it.

To celebrate “The Last Dance”, Gatorade has remastered the commercial with a few new additions.

NBA standouts Zion Williamson and Jayson Tatum as well as WNBA and former Chicago Sky star Elena Delle Donne appear in the commercial as they are re-mixed in. Each one of them recorded a new part to the commercial from their home, mixing in well with the iconic commercial.
