Lights, Camera: NFL Reveals More Action About ‘The 100-Year Game’ Campaign

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

March 2, 2019:
The NFL Scouting Combine concludes March 4, but the 100th Anniversary season for the league marches on.

The debut of the NFL’s self-homage, “The 100-Year Game,” aired during Super Bowl LIII, with accolades for its storyline and production flowing into the league office.

According to the NFL, following its premiere on Feb. 3,” The 100-Year Game” has been viewed more than 100 million times across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube on league, club, player, influencer and social media accounts.

Now, NFL Network is offering, “Making of the 100-Year Game,” what is being called the “story behind that historic multi-day production shoot.”

Some 44 current players and icons, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and select guests appeared in the full spot (see list below.).

It was directed by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Lone Survivor) and developed by the NFL in partnership with creative agency 72andSunny, Los Angeles.

The NFL Network special unveils what took place during various production shoots in Los Angeles, Boston, Orlando and New Orleans.

It includes exclusive behind-the-scenes shots and outtakes from the filming of “The 100-Year Game”; interviews with Berg, stunt coordinator Jeff Dashnaw, Julie Haddon (the NFL’s svp-global brand and consumer marketing); and NFL Hall of Famers Franco Harris and LaDainian Tomlinson, who both appeared in the spot.

"We wanted to create a commercial spot that would unite fans of all generations" Haddon said via the league.

"To kick off the 100th season of the NFL, we thought it was only fitting to celebrate so many of our former and current superstars from yesterday and today with a campaign like this.”

According to Berg, "As an avid football fan, this was an incredible project to be a part of.

”We had a lot of personality spanning 100 years of the NFL in one room, and there were so many moments beyond what was captured in the two-minute spot that fans will get a kick out of."

Included in the full spot, in order of appearance:

Roger Goodell, Dick Butkus, Joe Greene, Aaron Donald, Peyton Manning, Orlando Pace, Alvin Kamara, Drew Brees, Michael Strahan, Rob Gronkowski, Brian Urlacher, (Ninja), JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marshahn Lynch, Ndamukong Sah, Eli Manning, Beth Mowins, Mike Singletary, Christian McCaffrey, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders, Larry Little, Paul Garfield, Larry Csonka, Todd Hurley, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, LaDaninian Tomlinson, Ed Reed, Jim Brown, Baker Mayfield, Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw, Odell Beckham Jr., Patrick Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, Derwin James, Jalen Ramsey, Franco Harris, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Sarah Thomas, Ron Torbert, Tony Gonzalez, Von Miller, Sam Gordon, Richard Sherman and Saquon Barkley.
