But his greatness did not stop on the court. Michael Jordan has also been a part of some of the most iconic and memorable commercials in advertising history. From Nike, Gatorade, McDonald’s, and more, Jordan’s impact on advertising has earned companies and himself millions of dollars.
In this article, we’ll pop the popcorn, open the tabs on our soda cans, and watch Michael Jordan’s top 11 greatest commercials.
These are Michael Jordan’s 11 most iconic commercials of all time.
11. Nike: 100-Foot Rim (1995)
One of the most iconic Air Jordan shoes is the Air Jordan XI, the shoe MJ wore when the Bulls won 72 games and their fourth NBA title. This commercial is another one where Jordan doesn’t speak, but it’s extremely effective.
Jordan starts the commercial out by eyeing a 100-foot rim. This doesn’t scare Jordan, as he’s wearing his Air Jordan XI. Jordan takes off after the hoop and soars in the air.
Jordan slams the ball, but now he has a new problem… How to get down? This is something Jordan is unsure of as he gives the camera a look.
This is a simple yet effective message that made fans want to cop a pair of Air Jordan XI. Even though the 100-foot rim commercial doesn’t crack our top 10, it’s still good enough for an honorable mention.
