Xbox commercial

  • Did they re-edit that to feature the hawks?
    I swear I saw the spot a few times with other clips but last time was completely full of Seahawks plays...

  • Maybe because of Russell's Xbox promotion tour this week?

    I noticed that too. I don't know if it's a regional spot or not, but I definitely noticed the blue shirts. Could be that the Hawks are finally just that good...

  • My pops told me Microsoft hooked Russell up with a Xbox One last month. Lucky.

  • It's not regional. I see the Hawks in their commercials too.

    I think is is because Russell has a deal with Microsoft.

  • I figured it was just because microsoft is based in redmond, the commercial was made by some microsoft Seahawks fans or something.

  • I would guess its because of our owner Paul Allen. I'm sure he can still pull a few strings at microsoft to promote his hawks and the Xbox.

  • I've seen that commercial repeatedly out here in DC. I'm sure the ad execs responsible were thinking in multiple layers. For example, the Seahawks new uniform is "cutting edge" and "upgraded" from their past (i.e., like the new Xbox onsole). They're also a team that's getting a lot of notoriety for their youth and brashness (again, something you want to associate with your new console). I'm sure all kinds of these things get thrown around on the whiteboard when they make these decisions.

  • The Seahawks have been featured ever since they announced the Xbone along with that new NFL contract. Maybe someone can ask Blitz...I bet you all didn't know he's a MS executive communications manager.

  • RW is a crack up trying to pitch the Xbox One.

    RW describing the features of the Xbox is tantamount to me telling what it's like to date a super model...clearly no experience, which I have no problem with our QB not being that kind of "gamer." I prefer the real life one better.

  • Didn't know there was another version of that commercial. That's the only one I've seen. Guess I don't watch enough tv.

  • RW has been promoting Xbox One for a while now. During the MS company meeting at the Key there was a spot where RW spoke about Xbox one from the Hawks indoor training facility (Taped). MS is local, RW is a paid Xbox One spokes person, and MS has always used local personalities for their advertising. Doesn't hurt that the Hawks are the best team in the league right now. :)

    Paul Allen has nothing to do with it. He hasn't been involved in anything MS for years.

    Go Hawks!
