BRISTOL, CT -- A snack vending machine trumps fresh popcorn sold "by a real human being" in ESPN's latest commercial to promote its SportsCenter news show.
The television spot features SportsCenter anchor Scott Van Pelt opting for vending machine fare over fresh popcorn hawked by a vendor in an ESPN breakroom at its Bristol, CT.
The "This is SportsCenter" campaign features mini "mockumentaries" that capture comical moments on ESPN's Bristol campus when SportsCenter anchors interact with professional athletes, celebrities and mascots. More than 325 promo spots have been produced since the campaign debuted in 1994.
