This new Gatorade commercial will punch you in the stomach

There is a new Gatorade commercial featuring Karl-Anthony Towns, but it’s not so kind to Big Blue Nation.

Gatorade’s “Secret To Victory” campaign shows today’s star athletes recalling their worst defeats, and Towns is shown looking at a “38 & Done” newspaper article hanging in his Minnesota Timberwolves locker.

“Take a perfect team and blow a perfect season,” he says into the camera.

See it for yourself below if you can stomach it:

Ugh.

    I like it !
    Another chance to show that even the “one and done” guys really do care.
    I would hope that KAT thinks about that blown opportunity to make history as much as the rest of in the BBN

    Not a gut punch to me at all. We all know it happened & know it sucks…I’m just glad he’s using it as motivation on the next level! KAT loves #BBN & the feeling is mutual.

    Not upsetting, KAT representing BBN with that crew of all time greats only helps his image and ours cause he stays repping the blue and white.

    Still a punch in the gut… but it’s a perfect example of what drives you forward to the next opportunity for success. But it still hurts.

    Not a gut punch to me either, KAT is in great company in this commercial. The fact that the ad agency hired to make this commercial had that loss in their minds proves Kentucky is the most relevant college basketball team today.

    I really liked this commercial. The loss still makes me a bit sad just because of the what could have been from a historical stand point so I will just focus on his “the perfect team” comment.

    Very well done commercial. Painful – yes. Awesome that he uses that a fuel to be his best – amazing! KAT is a great human . . . and he is also pretty good at this basketball thing too 🙂
