Agency Network: 
April 2013

This past weekend, during television coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship “Elite Eight,” AT&T debuted the latest iteration of its popular “It’s Not Complicated” campaign. Only this time, the advertising is of legendary proportions. Tapping into the basketball theme, the new ads star slightly bigger “kids”: basketball legends Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell. Legends of the game, these four former players know, first-hand, the value of being bigger and faster – just like AT&T’s wireless network.

Film advertisment created by BBDO, United States for AT&T, within the category: Electronics, Technology.

I really like these AT&T ads. With the kids, now the former basketball players. Simple, kind, light and fun. Thumbs up for not overthinking.
