Early January rumors surfaced that McDonald's and Six-Time NBA All-Star and 2009 MVP Lebron James are signing a deal. Now McDonald's officially confirmed that LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers has agreed to a multi-year deal with McDonald's.
The relationship will kick-off with James' appearance in a remake of the iconic 1993 Super Bowl commercial "The Showdown," which is set to launch during pre-kick of Super Bowl XLIV, in Miami.

McDonald's will not advertise during the Super Bowl game, which means that they are not part of the lineup of Super Bowl 2010 advertisers.
Update:
Watch McDonalds Super Bowl Ad during Pregame featuring LeBron James and Dwight Howard.

You can watch the original McDonald's The Showdown Super Bowl 1993 commercial below.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
