Flacco, Kaepernick redo classic ad

Having already lost an eyebrow in a bet with Russell Wilson, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick now is battling his Super Bowl XVLII counterpart for some Mickey D’s.

Kaepernick and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco star in a new McDonald’s commercial that mimics the fast-food chain’s iconic 1993 ad featuring Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.

Like the Bird-Jordan ad — which USA Today’s Ad Meter named the No. 1 Super Bowl commercial of all time back in January — the new commercial shows the two signal callers engaging in a trick shot competition to win lunch, in this case a box of McDonald’s Mighty Wings. However, just like in February’s Super Bowl, the stadium lights shut off mid-competition, and we never see who comes away with the wings.

Check out both the new ad and its inspiration in the videos below.
