OK, so it's nowhere near as entertaining as the YouTube tirade of the angry Dallas Cowboys fan we posted Monday, but Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a new (and rather long) TV spot for Levis. And seeing as we love all things Russell Wilson at this point (as he's new, and has yet to disappoint Seattle fans on the field), we're going to go ahead and post it below ... even though two-and-a-half minute Levis commercials aren't usually our thing.
Getting hip to the hashtag trend that's sweeping the world, the commercial comes as part of the Levis #GoForth campaign. It's shot here in Seattle, and features all the obligatory aspects of a good commercial for jeans: Wilson and his wife visiting the Pike Place Market, Wilson playing catch with unidentified kids in a park, and Wilson talking about the impact his father had on his life atop a bed of urgent music.
But enough words. Here's the video:
On YouTube the video is described as:
Labeled by many as too small to play quarterback at the professional level, Russell Wilson has, as a rookie, already swept past expectations and worked his way to the starting position for Seattle.
Wilson shares how his late father's inspirational advice has helped him #GoForth.
Spending a majority of the ad talking about his quest to be different and blaze his own path, it's good to see Wilson isn't so different that he'd pass up a sweet endorsement gig like the one he scored with Levis.
Even better news: Wilson never breaks into "The Blue Wave is On a Roll"
