The NFL’s “Bad Day” Fantasy Football Commercial Continues To Be A Yearly Tradition

The fantasy football season is wrapping up shortly, and it’s been another crappy one for me. When your first pick misses all but the opening game amid a child abuse investigation, your second pick is wildly inconsistent and now out the rest of the year, and your third pick is so bad that he gets written out of his team’s game plan, it doesn’t set up as a good season. This NFL fantasy football spot has aired since about 2008. It features one-hit wonder Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day.” This was an awful song, which somehow made it to #1, and in fact was the #1 song of 2006. But it works in this ad. The semi-witty, semi-corny team names are fun. And the amusing, overwrought reactions of the terrible team owners are amazing. This one still makes me smile.

The NFL’s “Bad Day” Fantasy Football Commercial Is Still A Yearly Tradition

I originally wrote this post a year ago today, but seeing as I just finished dead last in fantasy football, I’ll put it back up. Here’s the original.

The NFL playoffs are almost upon us, and the stretch months of December and January are probably a favorite time of Daniel Powter. Who? While you might not remember his name, you surely remember his one hit, 2006′s “Bad Day.” I absolutely hated this song, and the fact that I just found out it was Billboard’s #1 song in 2006 makes me very sad. But there is one place where it works very well…this great NFL.com fantasy football playoff challenge commercial which has been playing since around 2008.

Having a lot of experience with mediocre at best fantasy football teams, I can relate. The semi-witty, semi-corny team names are also fun. And the amusing, overwrought reactions of the crappy team owners are amazing. This one still makes me smile.
