Terrell Owens Revisits His Days Being Despised by Philly Fans in Carl's Jr. Ad No brotherly love for T.O.

Terrell Owens may carry a lifelong albatross from his two ill-fated seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, but at least he can laugh about it.

In a new Carl's Jr. ad for the Philly Cheesesteak Burger, Owens reenacts the local loathing he experienced after becoming known as an egotistical excuse-maker in the turbulent 2005 season. Cops, kids and everyone in between are down on T.O. in the burger spot, which contrasts his dismal days in Philly with his opulent life today as a poolside retiree.

It's not an ad likely to wearm the hearts of any haters, but they'll at least enjoy seeing T.O. getting a smackdown from a little kid.
