Remember that incredibly gifted two-sport athlete who was exceptional at both football and baseball? No. Not Tim fucking Tebow. We’re talking about the one and only Bo Jackson.
Jackson was legendary on the field as well as on the TV screen because he was so insanely unstoppable in the Tecmo Bowl video game (For our younger readers: before Madden, there was Tecmo Bowl, the first video game licensed to use NFL players). If you had the former Los Angeles Raiders running back in the game you knew you were going to rampage into the end zone.
Jackson is back!
Kia has a new series of commercials featuring Bo dominating the Nintendo video game like it was 1989 all over again.
There’s even a commercial with The Boz!
To this day I refuse to play anyone in Tecmo Bowl who uses the Raiders.
