Drew Brees joins One Direction

The quarterback and the boy band team up

Drew Brees joins One Direction


 It’s a monumental cross cultural moment. Or it’s a silly Pepsi commercial. Take your pick.

So what’d you think of Drew’s pipes? Don’t be too harsh on him. You haven’t seen 1D’s Niall Horan try to throw a pass.

The point is, why didn’t we think of this sort of crazy combo decades ago. Can you imagine an ad where Mickey Mantle and a young Paul McCartney reached for a Royal Crown Cola at the same time? That would be something.
