The very first TV commercial for Microsoft's Xbox One, released in September, was centered on how the next-gen console could help NFL football fans enjoy watching games on TV with features like instant updates on player stats and more. Now, Microsoft has launched a new TV ad for the Xbox One that shows how two ex-NFL legends can use the console.
The clip, with the title "Retirement Home", shows former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher at home watching an NFL game when he gets an Xbox One notification from Ray Lewis, another ex-linebacker, this time for the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis wants a quick game of "Madden NFL 25" with Urlacher and he accepts, while also snapping the live game he is watching to the side of the screen.
Urlacher, dressed in casual wear, then asks Lewis via an audio chat if he misses playing football. Lewis tells Urlacher he doesn't and that it's time to move on, but the ad shows that in his home, Lewis is actually putting on his old Ravens uniform, taping himself up and applying eye black on his face.
This is the second Xbox One commercial that Microsoft debuted on U.S. networks this weekend, with the other being a funny ad about a woman who takes over her boyfriend's soccer time to play "Dead Rising 3."
