"Sports Heaven" is the world created by Arnold for Mobile ESPN where we follow a sports fan through the metaphorical experience of accessing sports news, information and highlights through Mobile ESPN. As he leaves his office building, our fan flips open his Mobile ESPN phone and is immediately immersed in the rich content experience of Mobile ESPN. As he's immersed in the sports content delivered by ESPN, the world of sports literally invades the cityscape around him. The streets are filled with Indy cars, dragsters and monster trucks.
The pedestrians are athletes from virtually every sportfrom Olympic gymnasts and track and field stars to baseball, football and basketball players to a worldclass angler, and even the National Spelling Bee champ. Lacy is the only boxer featured in the spot. The metaphor implies that ESPN, and thus the world of sports, is now available in travel size. No matter where our sports fan goes, the world of sports follows him. With the breadth and depth of the sports content offering and easy navigation designed to allow sports fans instant access to the sports information they want, sports fans will know upon viewing the spot that their phone has, indeed, arrived. A handset and content designed just for sports fans. This is Sports Heaven.
