Today Aston Martin announced that Tom Brady will become its new Brand Ambassador. And because of this, the Internet exploded. ‘NFL fans can’t afford that car!’ ‘He’s a cheater!’ ‘A deflator!’ ‘What does he know about cars!’ The Truth About Cars declared it to be “ridiculous”, see post here. Blah, blah, blah. I’m over it, people. I’ve got one word for you…women.
Aston Martin makes great cars and wants to increase a their American market share. Great idea. To most of us, Aston Martin = old James Bond movies. That’s not a bad thing, but it isn’t exactly driving people into the dealerships screaming “I want the same car as Sean Connery!” But guess what? Anything that Tom Brady drives will.
Brady is rich, a legendary athelete, married to a supermodel, gorgeous and sexy af– Men Want To Be Him. Women Want To Do Him. It’s that simple. It has nothing to do with the NFL, deflagate-gate or even cars. Hell, I barely know what sport Tom Brady plays, yet the man could get me to buy a Geo Metro. I kid you not.
I mean, just look at him. Football schmootball. If Brady was female we wouldn’t be questioning a thing. Do you think that Porsche really signed Maria Sharapova as Brand Ambassador because they think women want to play better tennis? No. Because she’s badass, beautiful and looks great in a miniskirt. Women Want To Be Her. Men Want To Do Her. The equation is the same.
If you don’t believe me, watch this video with your closest lady friend. Within minutes, she will turn to jelly and become an instant Aston Martin fan. No one has been able to do that since, well, Sean Connery:
