The first rule of karaoke is that if you're not really, really good, you'd better be really, really bad. Anything between, and you're basically that Wall Street guy singing Coldplay on a Tuesday. Rob Gronkowski clearly knows the rule, as he makes for a lovably terrible Jon Bon Jovi in Heat's new Madden Season video for EA. This year's Madden Season campaign kicked off with Von Miller spoofing Justin Bieber. Today we get Patriots tight end Gronk serenading you in the full splendor of a Bon Jovi concert circa 1987.

Professional pigskin may be the United States' most popular sport by a mile (or at least 100 yards), but it has never made a paid appearance in the Olympic Games ... until now. The NFL debuted its first Olympics ad in the opening days of this year's games with "One Team," created by Grey New York.
