Real Classy Tribute to Derek Jeter
What I love about this ad is that there is no dialogue, no grand special effects or grand proclamations. We see one of New York's most revered athletes shown getting respect from a host of people (even opposing players) for all that he has achieved over the years. The fact that the gratitude is expressed by the simplest of gestures -- a hat-tip -- makes this ad all the more rewarding.
