PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You thought the Jordan RE2PECT commercial was good? Gatorade just out-did them. According to Ad Week, Gatorade roped off a few blocks in the Bronx to shoot the commercial for Derek Jeter. The fan reaction shown in the ad is completely genuine.

The ad will air on TV for the first time Saturday on the YES Network and Fox.

Watch the commercial below:


Whether you’re a Yankees fan or not, and let’s make no mistake about it we’re not, as a sports fan you have to appreciate Jeter. Jeter has played his entire 20 season career with one team and will go down as one of the greatest baseball players ever.

Jeter’s highly-anticipated final game will be on September 28th against the Red Sox at Fenway Park, as we continue to reflect upon his legacy.
