Cam Newton vs. Commercial Kid: Did the old NFL Play 60 ad predict the fate of Newton’s Patriot?

The prophecy was announced.

Several moons ago, quarterback Cam Newton starred in a hilarious commercial for the NFL’s “Play 60” campaign, a league initiative urging kids to get out and play for one hour a day. . The ad has survived in the pantheon of legitimately funny ads featuring athletes – and now it’s resurfacing in the wake of Newton’s exit.

At the time of the advertisement, Newton was the starter for the Panthers, which means whoever that kid (maybe Kyle Allen?)

However, the similarity of these kids getting older, bigger, stronger, taking on Newton’s job and making fans forget about Cam? Bit strange !

Some thought the same:

There is good news though: Whatever happens, at least Newton will always be his mother’s favorite player.
