The new Brooklyn Nets have debuted their first commercial, hot on the heels of the , designed by co-owner Jay-Z.
The spot starts out with a narrator saying, “Brooklyn, you’re a vision,” over a montage of vintage videos of the borough, shouting out the “underdogs” and “the folks on the stoop,” with shots of smiling Brooklynites of all backgrounds.
It’s almost thirty seconds in before the commercial shows the Nets on the court – a mix of former players and stars of today.
