As Miami Dolphins fans, our gut reaction to Tom Brady is "ugh," so we guess it's only fitting he's the new poster boy for Ugg for Men boots. Yes, Uggs, those horribly ugly sheepskin affronts to footwear decency favored by circa 2005 UM sorority girls (paired with miniskirts, naturally) and middle-aged women who have just given up.
Though, because the Paris Hilton-wannabes of the world are "like, so totally over" the boots, it only makes sense the Australian footwear company is trying to appeal to other markets, like, apparently, male sports fans. So they've signed Tom Brady to an endorsement deal and plan to premiere this ad (on TV anyway) during Monday's New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins game.
Of course, there's only one man in the world who appreciates both professional sports and ugly boots, and unfortunately he's a Miami fan: Opium Group owner and frequent Miami Heat front-row occupant Roman Jones.
Well, say whatever you want about Chad Henne, but at least the dude doesn't wear Uggs.
