tom brady aston

The notion of American football being included in a non-pickup automotive advertisement is already ridiculous. I have nothing against the NFL personally. It has an exceptionally broad appeal, but it evokes a sort of blue-collar stars and stripes forever type of pride that makes it a superb platform to promote army recruitment and Ford’s F-150.

So, when I found out that Aston Martin — one of the most sophisticated brands in history — was making Tom Brady the face of its next advertising campaign, I was understandably upset. Not quite catching your girlfriend in the backseat of a Kia with your best friend upset, more like your dad telling you he’s starting an emo band upset. There’s an overwhelming sense of confusion and a pressing urge to do everything in your power to stop it from happening, because you know it’s all an egregious mistake and feel that — deep down — they must realize it, too. 

I also don’t particularly care for Tom Brady. He’s that perfect blend of goofy and handsome that makes you feel simultaneously inadequate and superior. He might be good enough for GQ and supermodel Gisele Bündchen, but Aston Martin? Not on your life.

Brady is a Cadillac CTS at best — yet Aston saw fit to place him right next to a $215,000 DB11 as part of its new “Category of One: Why Beautiful Matters” campaign like he fucking belongs there.

Even after shelving my irrational hated for the man, which was exceptionally difficult, I cannot piece this mess together. Firstly, Aston Martin needs a “face” about as much as Ferrari does. The brand should speak for itself as often as possible. I get that Aston is building a crossover and wants to grab more of the market but so does Lamborghini — and it’s approaching the matter without tapping celebrities with a gee-shucks persona.

Besides, Aston Martin already has the coolest celebrity endorsement in the business with its James Bond connection. Granted, Bond is entirely fictional, but take a moment to compare the two anyway. In one corner, we have a mysterious, impeccably dressed killing machine that spends every second playing by his own rules. In the other, we have Tom Brady — an extremely talented athlete whose biggest claim to fame is that he’s one of the few high-profile NFL players that hasn’t committed a violent crime. While that’s admirable, I have a suspicion it has more to do with his not being burdened with human emotions than being a moral person.

Brady is also willing to endorse anything with a paycheck attached to it, including UGG brand shoes and specialty biometric pajamas that are supposed to somehow “energize” you overnight. While this probably makes him an easy get for Aston, why would it want the same man who ate food off the floor in an Intel commercial?

Alright, I’m going to come clean. I never really put aside my personal bias against Tom. There was a point where I thought I had pulled it off but now I’m just angrily looking through photos of him smiling with that toddler-sized mouth he has the audacity show in public. It must take that guy a week to eat a single ear of corn.

Getting back on topic, Aston Martin is claiming the partnership will be long term and will center around Brady’s “affinity for the love of beautiful.”

“Brady will seek to share visualizations of where he sees beauty in his sporting moments, what he sees as beautiful in life, and what continues to compel him to pursue greatness after five Super Bowl wins and four MVP Awards,” reads the official announcement.

In addition to receiving his own DB11 to tool around in, Brady will also design very his own Vanquish S — of which the company is rumored to build as a limited edition model.

“Aston Martin exemplifies dedication to the craft of car making through a meticulous attention to detail,” Brady said. “While 104 years of heritage are reflected in each hand-built car, with product from the DB11 to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, this brand is primed to excel for the next 100 years as well. As a long-time fan and driver I am honored to join the Aston Martin team at this special moment in the company’s history.”

That sounds like a totally organic, unprompted, natural response.

I’m livid.

    Pickup trucks can be insanely expensive. It’s not a big step financially to substitute a leased Aston Marin for a tarted up F150. Once the pickup love subsides, this may be a brilliant campaign.

      Who cares about the soccer/football argument??
      All the top stars in both sports drive (and crash) cars with 6 figure price tags, while their fans limp to the games in some smoking, rusty POS, or take the bus.

      The big question is, can the Aston run on under-inflated tires?

    This is a strange choice since American Football is completely unknown to the rest of the world. A much better choice would be Lionel Messi, who not only plays an proper international sport, but is also the world’s most popular athlete. Brady is small time compared to the great Messi. The truth is American football just does not represent the sophistication of the Aston Martin brand.

        The World Cup has ten times the ratings of the Superbowl. The worlds stops for the World Cup, while only America really gets excited about the Superbowl. Why would the rest of the world get interested in a sport that they do not play?

          From a purely objective perspective ‘Akear’ is correct. Far more people play and watch and support what we call ‘soccer’ than American football.

          Messi is known worldwide, Brady is not.

          However in order to denigrate an auto, Jeremy Clarkson would identify it with a soccer player.

          Aston Martin should as Matt wrote, transcend sports. Images of past Bonds, from Connery to Lazenby to Moore, to Dalton and Brosnan should be used. Either Dalton or Brosnan could be the spokesperson.

            The US is no doubt one of Aston’s most important markets, just as we are for almost every luxury car. Even if VW can’t sell their defect-laden econoboxes here in real numbers, we’re a great market for all their premium-priced defect-laden boutique brands. Do you know who else is a great market for the same cars? The Chinese. Do they care about Brady or Messi? Do they care about celebrity at all? Who knows, because it is the mark of societies in decline. If they do have public figures that are adulated, then I’m guessing one of them is pitching Astons to the Chinese with no concern for Matt’s or akear’s feelings on the matter.

            When you consider how small Aston Martin is, they could have a boom year just by selling cars to all of the freshly-signed quarterbacks who aspire to being like Tom Brady. If this ad upsets anyone, then they are to be pitied.

            Soccer takes much more athletic ability than football. Look how Kyle Rote Jr. (US soccer player) dominated the superstars in the 1970s.

            The reason the Germans make superior cars is the same reason why they rule the soccer world. They play a game that teaches precision, endurance, and imagination. The American’s play football, which teaches American’s to only compete among themselves and forget the rest of the world exists. It is this type of provincial thinking that caused GM to abandon the European market.

            This, of course, explains why the U.S. routinely leads the rest of the world in terms of Olympic medals won…right?

            Soccer is a European thing, akear. Sorry. Plenty of Americans like it but it’s neither “superior” nor “inferior” to American football. It’s just another kind of game. American football is about brute strength and soccer is about endurance. Put differently: let’s take the best soccer player in the world, have Von Miller take him down a few times, and see how world-class he is after that.

            “Past time” – an unintentional truth.

            If ice hockey, which has speed, skill, and violence, can’t catch on in a big way in the U.S. I don’t see how soccer will, depite all the youth soccer and cheerleaders for a European lifestyle. There’s more than a whiff of anti-American attitudes in some of the comments of soccer fans.

            It’s kind of funny that some folks think that football is nothing but big brutes banging on each other, but the heart of the game is Xs and Os. Also, taking a dive, which has become part of premier soccer because a lot of the game is about convincing officials that the other guy did something wrong, is almost unheard of in American football.

            Speaking of officials, how come soccer doesn’t use instant replay to review calls, like they do in MLB, the NFL, and the NHL?

            The only time I see kids playing soccer is in organized leagues. I see kids playing pickup basketball, baseball, football and street hockey frequently.

            Simply put, soccer is boring because there aren’t enough scoring opportunities. A 1-0 hockey game is a lot more exciting than a 1-0 soccer game. Soccer has a lot of seemingly pointless activity at midfield and not very many shots on goal.

      After spending 5 years in Germany I was surprised how popular American Football and Baseball are. To say it is unknown is just silly and incorrect.

      While I am not a football fan the Germans would ask me about the Superbowl, if I was able to watch, if they show it on the US Bases, etc. They obviously knew what the Superbowl was and all the associated hype.

      Here, let me sum up every soccer game ever.

        I’ll agree – American Football is worse than watching paint dry. 60 seconds of actual play, followed by 5 minutes of commercials. Often followed by 1 play, and then another set of commercials.

        Years ago we were watching a college (american) football game. We decided to go to the local high school and watch a game there (big rivalry game). Got in the car, drove 6 miles to the game, watched the entire game and went home. Turned on the TV – the college game had plenty of time left because of all the commercials stuck in it.

            True. But this is a couple that promotes causes in the media. It’s different when one spouse is promoting a cause on Charlie Rose one night, and the other seemingly contradicts the other with a product endorsement.

            Aston does have EVs on the way, so that may have figured into the endorsement. Promote the DB11 now, then the Electric Rapide when it comes out.

            Besides, my EV has a beautiful Italian carbon fiber pain-in-the-neck sitting next to it in the garage and I make most of my money from oil and natural gas production, so I can’t really talk.

        If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying – attributed to baseball players, football players, and racers.

        My personal preference is towards creatively reading what’s in, and what’s not in, the rule book, not brazen breaking of the rules. I think it was Smokey Yunick who said that if it isn’t in the rule book, it isn’t cheating.

    Virtually all automobile advertising is the far side of stupid. I’m aware of only four exceptions.

    Decades ago, one of the high end British manufacturers (It might have been Jaguar.) had a print ad which showed a little boy with his nose pressed against the window of a dealership as he gazed at one of their cars. Caption was something like, “Some day, he’ll have one of his own.”

    Circa 1970, in Los Angeles, I watched a television commercial which showed a TransAm Camaro on a road course. You could tell the driver was trying hard because, in some corners, the tail came out a bit until he caught it.

    When the Boxster was new, Porsche had a commercial that featured an encounter between a young guy in a Boxster and an old guy, who had just awakened from a Rip Van Winkle type nap, in a what I think was a 550. At the end, the young guy exclaims, “Holy…” and the focus shifts to the old guy who finishes with, “…moley!”

    The last well done commercial had several clips of a Porsche Carrera 4 safely hustling down a winding road in a heavy rain storm. (I’ve always thought a Carrera 4 was the ideal automobile for covering long distances in a hurry without spending Ferrari money.)

        The only genuine measure of success is if it leads to them selling more cars. I feel like it’s a huge misstep for the brand’s image, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work. Perhaps ditching some of the snob appeal is exactly what Aston needs.

        As for the MHM take on appealing specifically to women, I feel like there are superior routes that could have been taken there too. The James Bond endorsement extends all the way to Daniel Craig — and his ads feature an Aston Martin, humanitarian causes, and even puppies. Granted, Brady is roughly ten years younger but couldn’t they have gone with a more well-spoken and continental junior hunk?

    I see the criticism of Aston Martin associations with American gridiron football. But Tom Brady, specifically, transcends his sport; he’s the NFL version of David Beckham – from Kalamazoo to Kazakhstan everyone (especially the girls) knows who he is even if they can’t name the team he’s on or position he plays. He is, so-to-speak, a glamorous jet-setting paparazzi target to more people in this world than he is the starting QB for New England. No one else in NFL like him.

    And I say all this as a loyal Patriots hater.

But there’s so little scoring in that sport the guy who yells GOOOOOAL for two minutes is probably more well known to people than Beckham . And nobody knows the yelling guy’s name ! Besides I hear there’s some guy named Ronaldo who’s the most popular kickball player now . They even made an ugly creepy bizarre Lucille Ball statue of him !

    A cheater, liar and a trump supporter- is that redundant?

    dislike him intensely and I’m from Patriots territory.

    I honestly first read the headline as as Tom Hardy, which at a minimum, is more preferable to someone who gives approximately zero whits about handegg (or any organized sports, really). But then, Mr. Hardy is probably more suited to the Aston Martin of 1978, and probably isn’t much interested in schilling anything.

    Wow that is gorgeous, would love to ride that.

    The Aston isnt bad either, to be honest pickup trucks and 60’s-70’s Detroit iron is more my thing

    These sports are apples to oranges. But in athletic testing, NFL athletes come out on top with rugby players a second. The pure athletic ability between sports have been measured in the past. Its staggering how fast, strong and athletic NFL players are given their large size. Even moreso considering the bulky and heavy gear they wear. Also, many football players were top level caliber athletes in other sports (baseball, track, etc) in addition to football. They truly are elite athletes.

    One of the funnier tests was when the top athletes from soccer, basketball, baseball etc were suited up in football gear and asked to perform the same athletic tests. Naturally, their results took a dramatic nosedive. Not shocking given the average gear weighs 15lbs. Even more amusing, in one similar test, basketball players could no longer dunk in football gear, whereas this was still easy for the football players.

    The most shocking tests (for me) were how fast the “fat”, 300+ pound football players could sprint. Astonishing given their massive size.

    I was also shocked by how well tennis players scored in these tests. Far more athletic than I would have ever thought had I not seen the results.

    IIRC correctly, soccer and basketball players scored similar in the tests for reference.

      It’s interesting about tennis players being near the top. My tennis coach always said that you don’t play tennis to get in shape; you get in shape to play tennis. I guess tennis players are just more disciplined than the lesser athletes.

    Sorry, but I have to say, this kind of writing should be left to Jack. This just falls flat to me.

    Meh. A match made in “I couldn’t care less”. Both are over-priced.

    Matt,
    Instead of letting your seemingly manufactured dislike for Brady occupy your time, perhaps proof-reading your post – one more time – would have been a better use of same.

    I actually own an Aston Martin, and to me this seems like when Lotus got Swiss Beatz as their Brand Ambassador. We all know how that ended. When I get together with other Aston Martin owners, we talk about (1) cars, (2) business, and (3) where to eat. If any of the local AMOC club members give a rat’s ass about football, it’s certainly never come up.
