The advertisement will show Laettner following Pitino around his house making “the shot” over and over to torment him.
See the link:

Seriously, if you ever want to annoy a Kentucky fan, I mean make his/her face turn red, steam come out of their ears and their blood boil, just walk up and whisper "Christian Laettner" into their ear and step back (quickly)!so my question is this: How does the Big Blue Nation feel about the Vitamin Water campaign taking the most famous shot in college basketball history
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

This is going to be an awesome commercial...
Andre Dawkins -- 2011 Final Four MOP
Looks like Rick is doing okay at Louisville with that house...
2009-2010 can't come soon enough.
Can't wait to see it! I think this might take away some of the bad taste in my mouth after that hbo Tar Heel lovefest.
UK fans lack a sense of humor. Here's an example:
Several months ago a co-worker was having a baby and had a "contest" to name the baby. The co-worker is a big UK fan so I submitted an entry with the first and middle names of "Hurley Laettner". She turned my name into HR for creating a hostile work environment.
I really like seeing how bitter big blue nation is over this.
The comments after the article are worth the admission price!
This has got to sting at UK.
Laettner is the devil.
The shot is a low point in UK history.
Pitino is Benedict Arnold, now coaching at Louisville.
Ooooh. Let's put all three together and have some fun!
This is all at UK's expense.
While a seething Pitino discusses the shot, Laettner should be shown eating a BBQ sandwich and discussing his favorite BBQ.
What's your favorite beer? "The fifth one, I think. That's the one that makes me handsome and fearless."
"These were the Dark Ages. Ages darker the anyone had ever expected."
Personally, I would have loved an ad playing off of 'groundhog day'.
The same shot over, and over, and over...day from Kentucky Hell.
Looks like the Kentucky fans do not approve such message.
I have new found respect for Rick Pitino.
Unlike most Kentucky fans, I think this is going to be hilarious! I just hope BigBlue Nation and their almost certain rage over this doesn't make bigger news than the commercial.
I feel Kentucky exorcised the ghost of Christian Laettner with the 17 point, less than ten minutes to go comeback win in the 98 regional finals, on the way to the National Championship.
I've posted it before but here is a great link to the UK vs Duke history:
If being a fan were logical, we'd all be Duke fans but some of us were born to a different blue.
HR told me to foster a caring environment, particularly given her pregnancy.
Maybe Shaun Dockery and Seth Greenberg will be in the sequel.
