Colin Kaepernick makes appearance in new Madden NFL 15 commercial that is kind of insane

New, comments

The folks at EA Sports released this extended commercial for Madden NFL 15, and I honestly don't know what I am supposed to think. It's wildly over the top, and as our sister site Polygon described it, "New Madden ad is expensive, idiotic and unmissable." You can watch the ad above.

I bring it up here in part because of how insane it is, but also because it features an appearance by Colin Kaepernick. Kap shows up at the 1:48 mark with three other guys rapping "Blah" a lot. It also features a game scene with LaMichael James scoring a touchdown.

I'm not entirely sure if this commercial is supposed to be a purposely stupid, and thus potentially genius commercial, or if the commercial makers lack any self-awareness at all. What do you think? Is it purposely crazy, or is it, as Polygon describes it, "a 21st-Century ad creative's wet dream"?
