New Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has a tough task trying to fill Wes Welker’s shoes. So maybe it makes sense that his first TV ad as a member of the Pats is for Foot Locker. In the spot, called “Park Run,” Amendola is in a park with a friend and trying to prove that he doesn’t need cool ASICS sneakers to get attention. “I’m kind of a big deal in New England right now,” he says. And to prove it, he stops a woman who’s running past. “You know who I am, right?” he says. We’ll let you guess her response. Amendola is doing what he can to warm up to fans here. After the Marathon bombings, he tweeted: “I will DONATE $100 for EVERY pass I catch next season to whatever “Boston Marathon Relief Fund” there is. And $200 for any dropped pass.”
