It’s that time again for Tom Brady. No, not time to play football, time to promote shoes. The Pats poster boy is featured in a new ad campaign for UGG, the fancy footwear Brady’s been endorsing for a few years. The schmaltzy black-and-white spot, shot at Brae Burn Country Club in West Newton, shows Brady and his father, Tom Brady Sr., enjoying some time together. (Tom’s dog, Lua, also makes a cameo.) In a press release explaining the ad — which is UGG’s first-ever global brand marketing campaign — we’re told “sometimes life’s biggest moments are actually the smallest ones.”
Meanwhile, ESPN.com reports that Under Armour, another business endorsed by Brady, has signed the QB’s supermodel spouse Gisele Bundchen to a multiyear deal. (The financial terms were not disclosed, but you can bet that Bundchen, the highest-earning model in the world, is getting paid well.) Tuesday, Under Armour teased its relationship with Bundchen with a Youtube video. Others signed to endorse the apparel company’s new women’s campaign include ballerina Misty Copeland, skier Lindsey Vonn, soccer player Kelley O’Hara, and tennis player Sloane Stephens.
