Today the NBA will announce its brand new, season long campaign called Everybody Up.
The season-long “Everybody Up” marketing campaign will debut its first spot, “Roll Call,” that is narrated by Grammy Award-winning artist and actor Common.
“Roll Call” highlights all 30 of the NBA’s teams and is taking attendance of all cities, countries, fans and teams for the highly anticipated 2014-15 season that begins October 28.
“Roll Call” opens to Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say Pt. I & II” and is set to a sequence of quick-cutting footage showcasing the expansive NBA community – players, coaches, team staff, arena employees, fans, and families, among others.
