In anticipation of the game’s upcoming Sunday night broadcast, the NFL has released a 15-second teaser for its official 2022 Super Bowl commercial. The teaser in question, which is titled “Player Casting Tape,” features brief appearances from three high-profile football stars, though, the NFL also hints in the video’s YouTube description that the full commercial may end up featuring more than just three athletes. That said, fans may still be asking: Who are the football players featured in the commercial’s teaser?
The first athlete shown in the teaser is former New York Giants defensive end, Michael Strahan (via NFL). Former Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Peyton Manning, appears after Strahan, while current Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, DK Metcalf, is the third and final athlete featured in the teaser. The 15-second clip sees the three athletes “auditioning” for an NFL Super Bowl commercial titled “Bring the House Down,” and they are shown reading lines and phrases while looking at the camera. The teaser ends with a title card that tells viewers to “Get ready to bring the house down right before halftime.”
Fans will, of course, have to wait until the actual Super Bowl broadcast to see the full scope of the NFL’s commercial for the game this year. However, based solely on the collective star power of the teaser’s three participants, it seems safe to say that the full commercial may, indeed, end up being just as epic as the NFL promises it will be.
