Tom Brady is 39-years-old, which in ancient in terms of being a professional NFL player, but you wouldn’t know it by watching him play. In fact, he just might win another MVP award this year, even after missing the first four games of the season due to suspension.
He has previously said he has no plans to retire in the near future, so that begs the question: how does Brady keep playing at such an elite level, with age seemingly having zero negative effect on him? If you believe Brady’s new Under Armour commercial, it might be because he has magical pajamas.
Brady and Under Armour have just released a new commercial at the Consumer Electronics Show for something called “Athlete Recovery Sleepwear Powered by TB12,” which will supposedly use “far infrared energy” to help heal inflammation and get the body ready for further training or to feel good on game day.
Under Armour insists it’s not just a cheesy gimmick.
“We’ve tested it,” Under Armour president of innovation Kevin Haley said in Time Magazine. “We’ve had actual third-party testing. And it’s clear. Believe me, we have some of the biggest skeptics in the world running around here. This isn’t some outlandish thought, this is something people have been working on for a long, long time. We’ve had our best PhD scientists here breaking down all the science. It definitely works. When you say ‘How confident are we?’ I’m confident saying we’re very confident.”
The sleepwear sells for between $80 and $100, which seems like a lot. Then again, Tom Brady is a mega celebrity, millionaire, Super Bowl winning quarterback, so it’s completely possible that he’s right and we’re wrong. We should probably order some of these PJs.
