GSP featured in Under Armour “Footsteps” campaign
August 9, 2011
Georges St. Pierre is featured in a commercial with Ray Lewis, Tom Brady, Cam Newton and other athletes for the newest Under Armour ad campaign. The campaign entitled “Footsteps” launched in support of this year’s fall line of clothes.
A link to the commercial is here.
In this extended version of the UA commercial, GSP is prominently featured. The numerous Primetime and Countdown shows have served as good placement for UA as much of the time viewers watch GSP engaged in some form of workout with Under Armour attire. The new UA commercial is a positive step for GSP as it shows he is on par with the likes of NFL elites like Ray Lewis and Tom Brady when it comes to athlete endorsements. It will be interesting to see if more athletic brands sponsor MMA fighters. Last week, we saw that Anderson Silva will be sponsored by Nike at UFC 134. Jon Jones will have a K-Swiss shoe. We will see if other brands pursue the likes of Cain Velasquez, Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar or Dominick Cruz. All champions and all marketable figures.
