Boomshakala! NBA Jam Comes to Life in Rockets Highlight Video

Hoopheads are overflowing with nostalgia, almost anyone that follows the sport knows this.

The Houston Rockets intelligently tapped into this by creating a video of highlights in the style of NBA Jam—the old school arcade game with classic one-liners that have withstood the test of time.

I missed the initial launch of this video piece on Thursday night, when they appropriately tied it into the widely accepted throwback Thursday / unofficial day of nostalgia. When I first launched it, not only was I pleasantly surprised at the video production that integrated elements from the game, I was joyously overtaken by the custom voiceover work that also matched up to the original game.

According to the tweet put out by @HoustonRockets, the video was also played in the arena.

Overall, I thought this was a fantastic execution that brought to life elements of the present and the past in a way that made perfect sense. Well done, Houston Rockets marketing team, thank you for taking me back to the days of he’s heating up and he’s on fire!
