March Adness final: State Farm, PlayStation

Adness-final

So, it all comes down to this. AdweekMedia's inaugural March Adness contest, pitting 16 of the best sports commercials against one another in a bracketed tournament, is down to its two finalists: Starm Farm's "Feeling Kinda LeBron" spot, in which LeBron James daydreams about playing for the Cleveland Browns; and PlayStation's "Dustin vs. PS" ad, in which Dustin Pedroia complains to PlayStation's director of game accuracy (played by Jerry Lambert) about his avatar not being able to hit the high-inside fastball in MLB '09: The Show. Vote for your favorite of the two spots on the March Adness site. The winner will be crowned late Friday. I will remain impartial, except to note that Lambert is probably the finest actor of his generation. UPDATE: And PlayStation hits it out of the park.
