The next generation of the "Expect Great" ad campaign is making the rounds with league marketing using the Rebkell forum as a focus group. These ads are intended to air during WNBA televised games and are targeted at the core audience of W fans which have them taking a more positive spin than the first generation which were targeted at male NBA fans during the NBA Playoffs.
The Diana Taurasi ad is about being "in the zone," and seems a touch forced. Diana moves a little too much and her voice is almost too strong.
The Sue Bird ad is about a desire to win. It works and has good footage that lines up with what Sue is talking about. She is a tad to cute at the end for my tastes.
I like the response the league has had to the strong negative response from the fanbase with regard to the ads. Advertising is an imperfect profession and it can be quite difficult to hit the right spot with the right audience at the right time. When they hit they can be brilliant. More often than not, they simply miss the mark.
