The commercial at first appeared to be a cologne ad for Brady until the spray bottle spells out the word "bready." But the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback made it known that "Subway as so much new" they "bought time" in his ad to showcase what was new.
"People are wondering about my new partnership with @subway. As this new commercial will tell you, I don’t eat much bread, but at the end of the day I recognize greatness when I see it. When they told me about all the new menu items they were launching, I couldn’t resist getting in on the fun. Bready…. It’s forbidden," Brady wrote on Instagram.
Brady was announced as one of the spokespeople for the new ad campaign along with Charles Barkley, Steph Curry, Serena Williams and Megan Rapinoe.
