Gatorade remixes “Be Like Mike” ads

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Back in 1991, after Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won the first of six NBA titles, Gatorade celebrated Jordan’s accomplishment with a commercial that still resonates today.

This week, to celebrate Gatorade’s 50th anniversary, Gatorade brought the commercial back with three new spins. The three new ads — “Groove Like Mike,” “Move Like Mike” and “Dream Like Mike” — play off the original song and visuals, with a newly updated feel. You can check out all three below. It may be nearly twenty-five years later, but plenty of basketball fans still want to be like Mike.

    I’m surprised Kobe Bryant wasn’t in these adverts, nobody wanted to be like Mike more than him. He wanted to be like Mike so much he probably appears in MJ’s family photos.
