Last week’s ridiculous “news” story regarding the supposed theft of Chad Ochocinco’s Starbucks gold card reeked of a well-crafted marketing campaign from the coffee mega-franchise and the man with more than three million Twitter followers. On Tuesday, the man who periodically threw footballs to Ochocinco in 2011 showed up in a much more obvious effort in product placement.
Pats quarterback Tom Brady appears in what amounts to a glorified Under Armour ad posted at FunnyOrDie.com. Though it’s somewhere between “funny” and “die,” it’s worth a look because it shows the typically aloof (when it comes to the media) Brady in a much different setting.
Then again, he’s surely getting paid handsomely for the effort.
While you may laugh (or possibly giggle, chuckle, tee-hee, or at a minimum go ‘Ha!’), Brady nevertheless has a long way to go to match Peyton Manning’s comedic skills and timing.
