Editor's Pick

Gatorade's latest football-themed spot is an updated version of "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," with lyrics that set out to disprove the belief of some that luck, craziness or divine inspiration are what makes a win on game day. Instead, says the brand, it's the hard work and practice that really makes winning "inevitable" rather than "incredible."

Max Malkin of Prettybird directed the spot, for TBWA/New York.
