Visa Ad Congratulates Phelps for 10th Olympic Gold


Michael Phelps won his 10th (and 11th) Olympic gold medal last night setting the all-time record for most career Olympic gold medals.  Another extraordinary performance at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.  Visa was the first to congratulate him with a commercial that aired on NBC right after his win in the 200 meter butterfly.  Visa’s “Go World” Phelps congratulatory spot narrated by Morgan Freeman was the perfect spot with perfect ad placement. This spot placement could make Olympic advertising history.  Visa must carry a lot of weight with NBC for them to put this spot right after Phelps won his 10th gold medal.  The video of the Visa/Phelps spot attached is not the best quality, but you’ll get the jest of it.
