    Anyone see the Jj Watt commercials for Yahoo! Sports?

    I just saw two of them... pretty funny. It's cool to see a Texan get this kind of attention.

    I also saw Arian do one for UnderArmour..... kinda funny, but it makes him & Julio Jones look "elitist"

    The grandma part on the first one was funny.

    I didnt like the one with arian, "say some non famous stuff" makes it sound like they know they are better than everyone else, and find it funny when average people do dumb stuff like clean their own garage out. Didnt find that one funny.

    Meh... Didn't think much of any of them. OTOH, I'm glad they're getting some extra exposure.

    I thought the Arian one was the best. I wish they'd have had someone else besides Julio, but it was still funny to me...

    Don't be taken in by their act. Stop feeding them or slack up on the birthday/Christmas presents and watch what happens,

    You should lighten up if that Arian commercial offended you. I thought it was hilarious.

    I wasn't offended, I just thought it made him seem elitist.

    I've always like the Peyton Manning commercials because he's never been afraid of making fun of himself. Seems humbling to me.

    The Jj Watt ads are similar. The "faux" bravado comes across as humbling & down to earth. Like, "I know you guys think I'm a Greek God, but this is just silly.... I'm just a down to earth guy like you."

    Likewise, though it is somewhat low key and cerebral. I don't think all folks appreciate that kind of humor.

    I thought it was hilarious.

    JJ also has an upcoming appearance on The League. Both arian foster and daniels have been mentioned on that show before, arian was the first overall pick and od was requested in a trade.

    arian is also in a movie called draft day with kevin costner..
