15 Current Commercials Starring Athletes That You Just Can’t Stand
15 Athlete Commercials That Are Annoying
Athletes appearing in movies and having cameos in TV shows is nothing new to pop culture. In fact, throughout time, professional athletes have been making cameo appearances in movies, sitcoms and even starring in their own commercials.
In case you don't remember, Michael Jordan used to be the king of commercials. He used to represent Nike and multiple other brands. He has since cooled the commercial-making down a bit, but there are a select few that feature the great one. Some commercials are comical and make you want to see them again, but others are just so repetitive and overplayed that you wish they were never made.
MJ isn't the only athlete to star in commercials, Peyton Manning has been known to do a few of his own. The only criticism of Manning, whether it's on the field or off, is that he accepts far too many commercial roles. He seems to be in every other commercial -- or at least he used to.
Blake Griffin is in the same boat as Manning. He takes seemingly every commercial role he can. I can think of three different brands he has a commercial for, and none of them are any good. Granted, the first time you see these athlete commercials, they are pretty funny -- nearly all of them start out this way. Then, either you watch too much TV, or it's just on constantly during breaks from your favorite show and there comes a point when it seems like the horrible commercial is on repeat.
There aren't too many good commercials out there, with athlete or not, but some can just irk the average person more than possibly desired. Let's get the point across right now: commercials are only good during the Super Bowl.
Now that it has been said, let's take a look at the 15 current annoying commercials starring, well, athletes, of course.
Tony Stewart: Xfinity Wireless Gateway
This is one of those commercials that was funny at first, but then increasingly got more annoying. I'm not sure whether it's the fact that Tony Stewart isn't the most comical athlete or the fact that it's on repeat all day long that makes it so annoying.
