Beats By Dre recently released a new commercial specifically for the Bay Area, reviving an E-40 classic, "Tell Me When To Go" featuring Keak Da Sneak, as the theme music.
In the ad, Golden State Warriors Forward Draymond Green looks out over the Golden Gate bridge before being placed in the original E-40 music video sporting a shirt that reads "THE BAY." Joining 40 Water and Green in the 30-second clip are fellow Golden State teammates, Shaun Livingston, Ian Clark and Brandon Rush.
Oakland native and NBA Champion Gary Payton and Brian Shaw make appearances in the ad as well. At the end of the commercial, Green makes his way through the music video, walking directly into an electric, fan filled arena with the tagline, "Game Ready, Victory Ready."
The Golden State Warriors are trying to even their NBA Western Conference Finals vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 on tonight (May 18). As underdogs, the Thunder won the opener, 108-102, on Monday (May 16).
