By any gauge imaginable, being an NFL player is pretty tough. It requires physical gifts, playbook study, and a tremendous work ethic. Being a dad, on the other hand, well, doesn't quite require that confluence of genetics and tenacity -- but by no means is it easy. And that's what makes this series of TV spots for Pantene great.
Scheduled to air during Super Bowl 50, the ads, uploaded by Pantene to YouTube, feature NFL players DeAngelo Williams, Benjamin Watson, and Jason Witten, all attempting to style their daughters' hair. An NFL tight end like Watson or Witten knows exactly what "Spider 2 Y banana" means when the quarterback calls a play -- but really, does a 260lb behemoth know what "braided pigtails" and a "ballerina bun" really require? That's the true test of a man.
