For the second consecutive year a Missouri football TV ad was named best in the nation by the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) Board of Directors.
The commercial was called "We’re Back", It featured four kids recalling their favorite plays from the season, before getting a surprise visit from Mizzou standouts Chase Coffman, William Moore and Jeremy Maclin.
I do remember the ad, there was a cute little girl with glasses who talks about Coffman’s patented leap over defenders and says "Are you kidding me?"
Mizzou won the gold award last year for the 2007 football commercial featuring former running back Tony Temple and head coach Gary Pinkel titled "Speed."
I even found the 2006 football commercial which didn’t win any awards and was a little cheesy, but pretty creative for a program that was looking to put butts in the seats.
You can catch the new television spot for the upcoming 2009 Tiger Football season on the front page of mutigers.com . I like the sound effect when the little tyke runs into Sean Weatherspoon. It features the new breed of Tigers who all say "it’s their turn to be a Tiger."
