The Brooklyn Nets released a video today, April 30th, touting the synergy between the former New Jersey NBA franchise and their new Brooklyn digs. The ad is titled “Hello Brooklyn” and features both vintage and current footage of life in the borough along with highlights from the Nets; including Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Jason Kidd and their current star point guard Deron Williams.
No Jay-Z in sight but the “Hello Brooklyn” is clearly a nod to Hova considering “Hello Brooklyn 2.0” is a song off of the rapper/mogul’s 2007 American Gangster album. Watch the entire commercial, which features the team’s new logo, below. Let’s hope the locals can afford tickets, though.
