These AT&T commercials are pure genius.  Instead of featuring little kids, AT&T changes things up and uses NBA legends to reinforce their latest message.

I’m a big fan of these AT&T commercials.  The ads that feature little kids to promote various features of the AT&T Network are really cute.  Two of my favorites are posted below.  I love the girl who talks about fitting more fans in a bigger stadium and the boy who wonders what animals on an island made out of candy would be made out of.

This latest AT&T commercial features some of the best players in NBA history.  Larry Bird and Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics along with Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of the Los Angeles Lakers make solid cameo appearances.  The message of the ad is that bigger is better.  The tie-in is that AT&T has the largest 4G network.  I dig the commercial.  It's entertaining.  I give it a thumbs up.
