The Seattle Seahawks are only a month away from beginning their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
Their biggest threat to the NFC crown might be their division-rival San Francisco 49ers and the teams’ first meeting of the season, on Thanksgiving night, is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated games of the year.
Companies like Duracell are wasting no time pumping up fans for football season and last week the battery company unveiled a commercial featuring both the Seahawks and 49ers.
Set in San Francisco in what we can assume to be the 49ers’ new Levi’s Stadium, the commercial depicts the Seahawks preparing for the final play of the game.
Offensive coordinators upstairs communicate with Russell Wilson on the field to devise the best play to beat their rivals.
“Alright we got one shot,” says the OC. “Let’s go Twins Right, 24 Stretch, All Diamonds.”
Wilson repeats the play to his offense and Duracell plugs their brand while the play is developing.
“When the game’s on the line,” the commercial’s narrator begins, “the NFL trusts Duracell Quantum to power their gameday communication.”
From there, we see Wilson scrambling to the endzone before getting hit by linebacker Patrick Willis.
Does he get in for the score? Is he short of the goal line?
Check out the commercial:
I know it’s just a commerical, but Duracell certainly made me excited for the rematch of last year’s NFC title game. The Seahawks won’t play San Francisco until Week 13, on Nov. 27. That game will be at Levi’s Stadium, but Seattle will host the 49ers two weeks later on Dec. 14.
This is the second time in the last year the Seahawks have been featured in a Duracell commercial.
A popular commercial for all fans, it has been viewed more than 22.5 million times on YouTube.
