Can Tom Brady be an UGG For Men Gamechanger?

I don’t have to describe the stereotypical girl who wears UGG boots, because you’re already familiar with the trope. You can practically hear the rubber soles scraping against the ground as she walks by, and most likely, you are judging her because of her fluffy boots.

Patriots star quarterback and perennial life-winner Tom Brady is very different from that girl. As far as brand spokespeople go, Brady is a safe bet with the ability draw males and females to a product. For whatever reason or however much money, Brady has been the UGG For Men spokesman for quite some time now, and the company has launched a fat campaign with plenty of close-ups on his face and feet, titled: “For Gamechangers.” I’m not sure if men are rushing to order their UGG shoes, but the 60-second spot is a quality effort from M&C Saatchi LA. The ad has the moody beat of a more athletic brand, and although it runs a bit long, the shoes on display don’t look half bad. It almost makes you forget about that trope-y girl walking by, until of course, the brand name flashes at the end of the spot. 

You can watch a behind the scenes video after the jump.
