What if I told you there was a commercial with three NFL All-Pro players endorsing Depends adult
diapers? What if I told you that these three players were Clay Matthews, DeMarcus Ware and Wes Welker? What if I told you that they are all wearing adult diapers in the commercial?
You would tell me I was crazy, that there is no way three superstar NFL players would agree to endorse such a product. Well, guess what? You are dead wrong!
This commercial brings up several questions:
1.) This was uploaded on YouTube almost a year ago. How was last week the first time I saw the commercial on television?
2.) I am assuming that I know a few people who have seen this before. After seeing this for the first time, why would they not immediately tell everyone about this commercial?
3.) How does this video only have 138,000 views?
4.) Where is this commercial taking place?
For all three of these players to be together practicing drills you would have to assume this is the Pro Bowl. That means there would be other NFL players around. This commercial just isn’t realistic. You are telling me that Welker, Matthews and Ware wouldn’t be getting ridiculed for trying on the new Depends Real Fit for men briefs and then running through drills? I don’t think so.
5.) Did Wes Welker fire his agent for taking this endorsement?
Clearly he carries this commercial, which is surprising because Clay Matthews is only in about 1 million commercials right now, but I’m positive that isn’t a good thing. Matthews and Ware don’t bring a lot to the commercial besides awkwardly turning down Mr. Depends’ suggestion to try out the product even though it is for charity. Not only is Wes Welker the one that agrees to try out the “Real Fit for men” briefs, but I’m going to have to assume that is a shot of him pulling his pants over those diapers. His ass slap and accompanying face also make the commercial.
6.) Why didn’t Depends get Mark “Stink” Schlereth involved in this ad campaign?
There are so many questions, but so few answers surrounding this commercial.
(Special Note: Upon further investigation and in all seriousness, there is a longer version of this
commercial that explains all three of them are doing this for the Jimmy V Foundation and to raise
awareness about prostate cancer. I tip my cap to Clay Matthews, DeMarcus Ware and Wes Welker)
