Everyone know those catchy/annoying NFL Play 60 commercials with the Falcons and Bears that has the song that goes "yadda yadda yadda yadda jump on the bus!"? Looks like we are the next team to be featured in it.
In Peter King's 10 Things I Think I Think today, King posted the following:
6. I think you'll see an interesting new commercial on the air next Sunday. (You'll probably be so sick of it in two weeks you'll never want to see it again.) But it's one of those NFL Play 60 commercials, with players from one team getting on a yellow school bus to the tune of "The Power Is On,'' by The Go! Team. (I had to look that up. There's no way I would know who The Go! Team is -- the band is from Brighton, England -- as you well can figure.) But the song's catchy, and this commercial is pretty good too.
It's the Carolina Panthers on the bus with kids, then getting off to exercise with them. There's Cam Newton, nodding in tune with the song, and Steve Smith, and Ron Rivera, and Jon Beason, and other players ... and -- spoiler alert now -- when the front door of the bus opens up to let everyone out, you see the driver. Jerry Richardson, the Carolina owner. In a spiffy blue suit. "When we heard Mr. Richardson would be the driver, we were all like, "Whoaaaaa,'' said Beason. Beason agrees with me: "The music is very catchy.''

Who else is excited to Cam, Smitty, the Beast, Rivera and Jerry Richardson in a blue suit in a commercial? I can't be the only one, can I?
