Berg: Directing NFL 100th season commercial was 'emotional'

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Director Peter Berg says he had an "emotional and satisfying" feeling while watching an all-star cast of retired and active NFL players film a new Super Bowl commercial.

Berg directed the commercial called "The 100-Year Game," which pays homage to past and present players including Tom Brady, Jim Brown, Joe Montana, Dick Butkus, Deion Sanders and Patrick Mahomes. The two-minute ad will air during Super Bowl 53 on Sunday.

The commercial will kick off a yearlong campaign to celebrate the NFL's 100th season, which starts in September. The tribute will feature more than 40 current and former NFL players including 19 Hall of Famers.

Berg says the commercial took three days to film in Los Angeles.
