Under Armour Has More Tom Bradys Than You Can Handle

By Patrick Coffee 

Since our readers always complain about us not devoting enough digital space to the work of one Droga5, here’s a brand new big-budget campaign by Droga5!

This one for Under Armour is definitely unlike the agency’s previous work for the brand. It takes Tom Brady, or the world’s least popular person to everyone who doesn’t live in New England, and turns him into some sort of mass-produced replicant.

What, you didn’t think you could possibly hate him and his $38 million salary any more than you already do? Get ready.

To make the campaign even more perfect, it debuted during last night’s 28-21 Patriots victory over the Steelers–during which the losing team conveniently experienced some headset malfunctions.


To those who think we love to slobber all over Droga5, watching this ad reminded us that we dislike both Tom Brady and Under Armour.

And wouldn’t it have been great if the judge hadn’t reversed his suspension, leaving the spot to air with him sitting on the bench?
