Don’t double take at that title, it is accurate. New England Patriots’ wide receiver Wes Welker, Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Clay Matthews, and Dallas Cowboys’ linebacker DeMarcus Ware are in a commercial for diapers. However, it is for charity, the Jimmy V Foundation in fact, but that doesn’t make it any less comical.
First of all, I didn’t even know there was diapers for everyday folks, but after seeing the commercial I feel really dumb for thinking that. I thought it was just for kids and the elderly,. I guess you really do learn something everyday. It also makes me wonder if NFL players actually do wear diapers on the field. I doubt it, but hey, it wouldn’t surprise me after seeing this.
I’m glad the diapers fit Wes Welker well. I’m sure he had a little accident of sorts after dropping the ball in the Super Bowl.
If you are still confused how this is connected to the Jimmy V foundation, you can look at the extended edition below, which I recommend you do, because it makes a lot more sense. They are doing this to create awareness for prostrate cancer, making the diapers thing a lot more understandable.
Bravo to these guys for doing this. It certainly is embarrassing, but the spot is effective. Way to make diapers look cool , fellas.
