Replay Episode 3

Agency Network: 
May 2009

REPLAY is a documentary film of two rival high school football teams from 1993 who reunite and strap on the pads 16 years later to replay their historic ‘93 match-up which ended in a 7-7 tie. The schools are in PA and NJ and are separated by only the Delaware river. Peyton Manning served as the honorary coach for Easton. Eli Manning was honorary coach for P’burg.

Gatorade is enabling and sponsoring the game and documentary project to convey the brand idea “once an athlete, always an athlete.” The concept behind REPLAY is to blur the lines between professional athletes and everyday athletes by bringing them together and giving them a common goal. It is a salute to the spirit of sport, of rivalry, of competition and of rediscovery.

Film advertisment created by TBWA, United States for Gatorade, within the category: Non-Alcoholic Drinks.
