Live: “Legends of the Summer” – JZ | JT

JZ/JT at BC Place

Legends of the Summer is a fitting name. Justin Timberlake, with his boy band turned solo platinum recording artist status, an SNL skit here and there, some golf with Bill Murray, and maybe even a film with Mila Kunis. Then there’s Jay-Z, arguably the biggest Hip Hop mogul, along with being one of the most influential persons in the world, he happens to be a decent business, man.

Directed by Stuart McIntyre in collaboration with Ogilvy Paris.

This is part of Louis Vuitton’s “The Greatest Words” by Muhammad Ali series, featuring Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). This campaign and video is incredibly captivating. When you take one of the greatest boxers of all time, one of the most prominent designer companies, and a conscious rapper, you get class.

NHL: 36

NBC Sports started a new documentary series back in December 2011. Much like HBO’s 24/7, it follows a specific player for 36 hours. You get the chance to see inside the life of a NHL player. Unfortunately it’s not HBO, so you’ll have to deal with the “bleeping,” which if you’ve ever seen inside the hockey world, there’s a decent amount of it.
This post will catch you up with the series, there have been 5 episodes so far and as they air, AHM will post them.
December 14, 2011 – Patrick Kane (Chicago Blackhawks
January 4, 2012 – Patrice Bergeron (Boston Bruins)
January 25, 2012 – Nicklas Lidstrom (Detroit Red Wings)
February 22, 2012 – Mike Richards (L.A. Kings)
March 7, 2012 – James Neal (Pittsburgh Penguins)
