Old Geezers Battle Young Whippersnappers at Basketball in Centrum’s Short Film

Guess who doesn't keel over

Sometimes experience proves more powerful than youth. That's certainly true in this new long-form spot for Pfizer's Centrum from Leo Burnett in Chicago, which pairs middle-aged basketball players against a group of twentysomething guys.

We won't spoil what happens, but you can probably guess.

Yep, it's not surprising that in a film made for a multivitamin, we'd see the older gents have still got game. Though that doesn't make it any less entertaining to watch the young punks get schooled.

The film was shot in Goat Park in Harlem, New York, and has already garnered half a million views online. Maybe the appeal of watching real people play basketball has something to do with it. Or maybe we're a bit sick of the soccer.
