Jay Cutler Is Fashion Guru in Ad for NFL Women's Apparel Stars chat with fans in Grey spots

It looks like Jay Cutler has learned a thing or two from baby mama Kristin Cavallari when it comes to fashion. And that would be: Don't argue with women about it. In this amusing new spot from Grey, New York, the Chicago Bears quarterback delicately adjudicates a dispute between a woman and her roommates, who seem to have absconded with (or, from their point of view, are "borrowing") her official Bears apparel—part of the NFL's collection of women's clothing, which it's pushing quite heavily this year. It might have been more fun to have Condoleezza Rice serve as judge and jury here (hell, executioner, too, if she felt so inclined), but Cutler acquits himself decently. The spot's structure—in which the three parties are all seen in completely separate environments, even though they can talk to each other—is a nice little device that distinguishes it visually from all the other pre-season NFL spots. It's the same structure Grey used, to amusing effect, in another recent spot starring Eli Manning and DeMarcus Ware. See that spot, and credits for both, after the jump.
