Baker Mayfield planting an Oklahoma Sooners flag in his sandwich in front of former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is a personal favorite of mine. So is the 2019 installment in which former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow showcases some light road rage, Auburn legend Bo Jackson argues with Alabama’s Derrick Henry and Mayfield tells the new kid on the block, rookie Kyler Murray, it’s his job to grab everyone’s bags.
Young and old college football stars like Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Navy’s Roger Staubach, Ohio State’s Eddie George, Florida’s Steve Spurrier, Georgia’s Herschel Walker, Notre Dame’s Tim Brown, Ohio State’s Troy Smith, Baylor’s Robert Griffin III and even Paul Hornung have all showcased their acting skills on these ads, but the real star of every commercial is Tebow.
Nissan’s latest commercial for the 2020 NCAA season features a beautifully-bearded Tim Tebow. Let’s just say I’m not sure his wife signed off on this look.
Tebow Debuts Beard In Heisman Commercial
It’s been a few years, but Lamar Jackson is finally moving into the Heisman House. As the former Louisville standout and current Baltimore Ravens quarterback pulls up to the house, he sees it’s run down.
Tebow answers the door with a beard even Moses would be jealous of.
“Lamar? What are you doing here?” the two-time national champion says.
When Jackson informs Tebow that it’s “Heisman time,” word begins to spread around the Nissan Heisman House. Derrick Henry, Mark Ingram, Baker Mayfield, Marcus Mariota, Kyler Murray and Charles Woodson all clean up the house and get it ready for football season before the commercial ends with a final shot of Tebow’s glorious chin mane.
“Welcome to the @NissanUSA #HeismanHouse @Lj_era8! If I knew you were coming I’d have combed my beard. #ad,” Tebow tweeted.Advertisement
Oh yeah. After a long offseason thanks to COVID-19, we finally have a college football season. I’m not sure this commercial makes me want to buy a Nissan Altima, Nissan Rogue, Nissan Armada or Nissan Sentra. But the Nissan Heisman House commercials are back, which means football is too.
