An Animated History of Air Jordan (Video)

In celebration of MJ's birthday.

by Brendan Dunne

Michael Jordan turns 52 today, which means that there's all sorts of birthday content for the man making its way around the Internet.

Deserving of a hat tip is this clip from Bleacher Report, which animates every Air Jordan silhouette to date and gives them some cultural context as far as MJ moments and campaigns tied to the shoes. The Air Jordan 5 comes with a nod to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the Air Jordan 14 shows up with the clock from the Last Shot ticking in the background, etc.
