Tim Tebow may have lost his job, but he kept his sense of humor. The former Florida star has been unable to find work in the NFL since he was released by the New England Patriots over the summer. Ironically, Tebow was able to turn his lack of work into an advertising gig for the Super Bowl. The end result is actually very entertaining.
Tebow appeared on “Good Morning America” on Friday and debuted his T-Mobile commercial that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday. The ad focuses on all the things Tebow has been able to do — ride a bull, practice stand-up comedy, throw a football on the moon — now that he is unemployed. The punch line?
“Bottom line — contracts hold you back.”
You may not know it’s a cell phone commercial until the very end, but someone came up with a great idea. Tebow remains an extremely marketable person despite the fact that his NFL career may be over.
