Help me remember an old (Basketball? Nike?) Commercial

Its possible that I made this commercial up. What I remember about it is:

- I'm pretty sure the sport was basketball, because of the proximity of the crowd to the players.
- the lighting was very dark and dramatic, like an oil painting
- the focus of the shots was on the crowd reacting to a loss, in relative slow motion
- the music was either classical, or opera
- extremely basketball as antiquity tragedy vibes throughout

What I feel like happened is I never saw this on TV, but I actually saw it online, with comments being like "man this is amazing, I wish it were uploaded in better quality"

But now, especially since I cant remember the brand, I cant even find the low quality video.

This might be a real shot in the dark, but the forums track record for digging up media is still legendary, so worth a try.

    The Google search for "slow motion basketball commercial" gives me this?

    Thats unfortunately not it. I dont remember anyone particularly famous being the center of it (at least, not jordan famous) and it was for sure about the tragedy of the situation, rather than a sort of inspiration. I feel like the emphasis was how much emotion the fans feel at a game?

    Maybe it was not nike, but for a broadcaster, now that I think about it. Which would make sense why its hard to google and maybe not online

    I think it must be things like that the Futurama ad for Planet Express was parodying.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    Futurama was poking fun at an Apple commercial from 1984.

    The futurama joke commercial that first comes to my mind is the cash-4-bones one
