San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s Beats By Dre commercial got a lot of attention last week. It is just one in a series of ads promoting their new noise-canceling headphones. The theme of these ads are athletes blocking out angry fans of the opponents yelling and harassing them as they enter the stadium.
So the 49ers decided to recreate the commercial ahead of the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks. I expected angry Seahawks fans to be yelling at the team as they enter CenturyLink Field, which wouldn’t be too hard to imagine considering the rivalry and disdain between the two clubs.
Instead it is just a video of Kaepernick walking of the bus with no one yelling at him, but hey, they played that song from the commercial too.
