They're remaking our old Super Bowl commercial

A few weeks ago we told you the behind-the-scenes story of how a legal problem almost killed the Michael Jordan-Larry Bird "Showdown" TV commercial.

17 years later, the spot is likely to have a new ending with an appearance by Bird.

Carla Michelotti is still general counsel at ad agency Leo Burnett, which is also handling the remake, so I doubt they'll fail to get the right building use clearances this time.

If this report is true, I'm looking forward to seeing the new version.
