After 17 years in the NLF Baltimore Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis is retiring. Number 52 should enjoy a very lucrative post-football life, as he has made himself one of the most recognized faces on TV as a pitchman for companies like Old Spice and EA Sports. Take a look at some of his best commercials.
1. Old Spice Body Wash
He steps out of the shower wearing an armor of lather, climbs onto a Raven, flies into outer space and leaves the inhabitants of some ringed planet homeless with one shot of his heat vision. Mind. Blown.
2. VISA NFL
An adorable little girl gives Ray Lewis his most intense interview ever. Who knew his favorite color was purple? Well, yeah. But it was cute when SHE asked it.
3. Old Spice Deodorant
In the “Heart Of a Champion” spot Ray Lewis pulls what looks like the Transformers Matrix of Leadership from his chest to reveal “a universe of heartache and sadness that has been replaced by Old Spice” and then he grows six more heads becoming a All-Pro Hydra.
4. Madden NFL With Paul Rudd
There are several of these but the “Pep Talk” one is our favorite. When Paul dares to pause the game to actually interact with the outside world Ray quickly reminds him that, “I’M your family!”
5. Madden 13
The only problem with this commercial is that it’s so motivational that after watching it you want to go and do something with your life besides play video games.
