A video of Drew Brees on an interview show hosted by the Old Spice Man-Robot was uploaded back in September but it was only brought to our attention when Brees tweeted about it yesterday
. In the New Orleans Saints quarterback's own words, he's "contractually obligated" to call the video funny.
Clearly the Old Spice people are trying to mimic the aesthetic of Zach Galifianakis' popular "Between Two Ferns
" and the video succeeds in one respect: It. Is. Awkward. And not in a good way. For most of the video, Brees has a goofy grin on his face that simultaneously says "What the hell am I doing here?" and "I desperately need acting classes." The Man-Robot is mostly just creepy and strange.
In the end, it all plays like a car accident: a gruesome spectacle that you know you shouldn't watch, but you can't look away from.
