Since his stellar defense helped put his team in the Super Bowl and his amped-up post-game interview put him at the center of a media storm, Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman has been everywhere. And starring in this spot for Beats by Dre has only dialed up the hype. Brilliant? Premeditated?
Regardless, Sherman couldn't beat the Weiner.
Oscar Mayer Weiner, that is. Last week the hot dog icon saw its car-ad spoof take the top spot on the VideoWatch/VidIQ branded content ranker, generating more than 2 million views on YouTube. That just topped Beats by Dre's Sherman spot, proving the only thing that can cover hot dogs is mustard.
