Coca-Cola: Move to the Beat

BP: Fueling the Future & Here’s to the Home Team

Ryan Lochte AT&T ad: Luck Didn’t Get Me to London, I Swam Here

Morgan Freeman/Michael Phelps Visa ad: One Hundreth of a Second

AT&T: 24 Hour Olympic Challenge

Adidas: Take the Stage

Nike: Find Your Greatness

Ragu: Long Day of Childhood

Proctor & Gamble: Best Job

A few other topics we looked at:
