Most of you should be familiar with ESPN’s NBA ads that feature an RV and some combination of their NBA team and current players. They’ve had a number of really good ones in years past, and this year they’re keeping the tradition alive.
Earlier today, they released the latest of this commercial series, featuring the Minnesota Timberwolves duo of Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.
In one of the weirdest efforts put out by ESPN, this edition features Love driving along in the RV with Mike Breen. Along the road they keep driving by billboards featuring ads for “LoveDial.” Eventually Love decides to call the number listed at the bottom of the ads, and is surprised to hear who picks up.
I won’t spoil the ending, so check it out for yourself below.
YOU CAN CALL THE NUMBER. IT REALLY WORKS. NO. SERIOUSLY. CALL THE PHONE NUMBER AND YOU WILL HEAR RICKY’S VOICE.
Of course it’s just a message that let’s you know Love Dial is currently closed due to a pending lawsuit, but it’s awesome – just like Love and Rubio.
