Brett Favre finally learned how to walk away, at least in a new Foot Locker ad. The commercial is for the shoe retailer’s Week of Greatness 2013 and hilariously rights the wrongs of athletes such as the Green Bay Packers legend. Mike Tyson, Dennis Rodman, and Craig Sager all make amends for their famous miscues.
During his the tail end of his illustrious NFL tenure, Brett Favre didn’t know how to walk away. He proved that each and every offseason, retiring and then coming back almost instantly. He was the boy who cried wolf, retiring so often people grew tired of listening.
In the world of Foot Locker however, Brett Favre knows when it is time to walk away. He pushes away his plate and rises up from his booth at the diner and walking away with food still on his plate.
Mike Tyson’s portion of the ad showcases him apologizing to Evander Holyfield and returning the chunk or ear he infamously bit off in their bout. With the ear in a jewelry box, Tyson gives it back to a happy Holyfield.
There’s more than what I’ve mentioned, but I’ll let you watch Brett Favre and the others right their wrongs in the Foot Locker ad without giving any more spoilers.
