The guy in the sun suit is Ryan Kerrigan. He plays linebacker for the Redskins.
He can’t dance, but he can yell pretty good. So they got him to play the sun to show how you need Thompson Creek windows to keep the sun’s heat out of your house.
The Washington Post had a reporter pull up the YouTube on his iPhone on Thursday and bring it to the Redskins’ practice place and show it to Kerrigan’s teammates – because it went on TV Thursday night and none of ’em had seen it.
What he got was gold out of that…
Niles Paul: “Hahahahahaha”
Darrel Young: “Get the [expletive] outta here.”
Niles Paul (as Kerrigan starts screaming in the commercial):“HAHAHAHAHAHA”
Josh Morgan: “I hope he got paid for that.”
Niles Paul: “Hahahahahahaohmygoodnesshahahaha”
Darrel Young (as Kerrigan dances across the screen): “That’s outta his personality right there. Way outta his personality.”
Niles Paul: [plays the commercial again]
Rob Jackson: “Woooooow.”
Stephen Bowen: “What is it called, and where can I find this?”
The group watched the commercial at least four times before heading into the facility, presumably to spread the awesomeness around the locker room.
“It was weird, then it got funny, then it got weird again,” Bowen said when I asked for his review.
Alfred Morris, who missed the group showing, got to see it on his own.
“Oh my goodness. When was this?” he asked, in between fits of laughter. “I’m going to give him a hard time about this. That is hilarious.”
Kerrigan, who stayed on the field after practice to sign autographs, was a good sport about it all.
“Yeah, I gotta show I got a little personality every now and then. Usually I’m pretty tame in interviews and what not, but I’ve got a personality to me,” he said. “We had a good one last year, but we wanted to make it a little more out there this year. I think we got that accomplished.”
Sure beats those borin’ Winston Day Window World ads in Loozyana. Day doesn’t even show off the bag of weed he brought from Amsterdam in that ad. What’s fun about that?
