Classic John Madden Commercials

John Madden has announced that he is retiring today. And given that the broadcasting great has been in more commercials than any other announcer, we’re rolling some of his best spots.

Watch them and then vote on your favorite!

1. Ace Hardware - It was always natural for ads to include the Telestrator. I think this is the best of the bunch.

2. Tinactin– The script wasn’t that good and I never had any fungal problems. But who can forget that “Boom!”

3. Miller Lite - It’s the very end of the spot that puts this one over the top

4. McDonald’s – Another Telestrator spot that works.

5. Electronic ArtsThe best part about this ad is the line about throwing a Hail Mary every fourth down. It’s an inside joke to anyone who has ever played “Madden.” Luckily, for EA, that's a lot of people.
