How Those Awesome Time Traveling NBA Commercials Are Made

If you've watched any basketball games this past season, you might have noticed some really great commercials that showed current NBA stars in their earlier life (in high school, college, etc) interacting with people from "the future" (or 2011). It's amazing when you see 2005 version of Kevin Durant "react" to the fact that he'll be playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder (a non-existant team at that point). Or 2011 people telling the young players how great they'll grow up to be.

The clip above details how they pulled off the Steve Nash commercial (which airs in full before the explanation). They basically re-created the scene, filmed it, tweaked it, colour corrected it and made everyone scratch their heads and think maybe that kid was from the future. Great stuff. [Dime Mag]
