Drew Brees isn’t allowed to ride a motorcycle due to his current NFL contract. The New Orleans QB found a loophole so that he can enjoy a ride on a Can-Am Spyder – retirement.
After his ride is completed, Brees comes back to the NFL. We’re left assuming this will result in the ol’ Brett Favre “I’m retired, oh wait no I’m not” pattern each time Brees wants to go for a spin.
Of course, Brees isn’t retiring and is probably several years away from giving up football. Still, the ad is a clever and unique way to present both the product and the contest. Who wouldn’t want to win what Brees is contractually forbidden from riding?
