NBC has Unveiled Their MLS Commercial for the 2013 Season; What Do You Think?

New, 27 comments

NBC Sports Network has unveiled their first commercial for the 2013 MLS season.

NBC Sports Network has always been a bit more aggressive with regards to marketing and commercializing MLS than other sports networks have done. ESPN has done some decent things in the past. Fox Soccer generally did worse every single season they had the rights to MLS. NBC, by contrast, might as well be a knight in shining armor for MLS then.

Anyway, they recently posted their newest commercial for the upcoming 2013 kick off. All in all, it's not bad. It generally does a good job of conveying the excitement behind the sport as well as the sort of young, "cool" vibe that the sport exudes these days.

But far be it from me to make up your minds for you. Tell us, what do you think of the first NBC commercial for the 2013 season?

Also, 10 points for whoever can guess the band they used at the end there. Hint: It's a well known punk band from the 1970s.
