Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made his commercial debut for ESPN a couple months ago when he appeared in a hilarious ad for Monday Night Football. Now, with Stafford set to play on Monday Night Football, two new commercials for ESPN featuring Stafford have been released.
Both of Stafford's new ads are part of the This Is SportsCenter series. These two commercials were filmed back in February and feature Stafford and Hairy Dawg, the University of Georgia's costumed mascot. The first ad involves Stafford walking in on Hairy Dawg after some water was spilled, leading Stafford to having the wrong impression of what happened. The second involves Hairy Dawg going through Stafford's leftovers in the trash.
Here's a look at both commercials, which will debut on TV on Monday night:
Neither commercial is funnier than the Monday Night Football ad, but that one was going to be tough to top in the first place.
