With the NFL regular season almost upon us, M&C Saatchi LA couldn’t have picked a better time to roll out its new fall campaign for UGG Australia’s UGG for Men line starring one of the league’s top QB’s, Tom Brady. Like many of you, we initially snickered when it was announced that Brady was appointed as a spokesman for UGG and it only added more fuel for New England Patriots haters out there (and they are legion, it seems).
But, we must say the campaign from M&C isn’t half-bad, though we’re more captivated by a time-lapse video (below) of the creation of the giant “Tom Wall” here in NYC (nice soundtrack, too). As for the actual spot (above), Brady fulfills a kid’s dream by playing an invisible game of football with him and others–or so we’re led to believe–in the middle of an airport. Hey, it could happen…as long as you take your shoes off first. Check out credits and behind-the-scenes clip for “Invisible Game” after the jump.
