Director Bryan Buckley, m:united//McCann Level The Playing Field In Super Bowl Spot For Microsoft
This :90 for Microsoft follows the inspirational story of passionate young gamers, including nine-and-a-half-year-old Owen, rising to the top of their game with a little help from their friends, family and the Xbox Adaptive Controller. The story illustrates Microsoft’s commitment to building accessible technology that levels the playing field and creates opportunity for all, ending with the line: “When everybody plays, we all win.”
A :60 version of the spot is slated to run during the Super Bowl telecast on CBS.
