LeBron James and Dwight Howard filmed a new McDonald's ad playing off the classic 1993 shooting showdown between Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. McDonald's released a preview of the commercial last week, and the entire ad aired just before the Super Bowl kicked off tonight.

Interestingly, the new version is a dunk contest instead of a shooting match. As a fun surprise, one of the original participants makes an appearance at the end.
