Ninja joins Jim Brown in 100 years of NFL Super Bowl LIII ad

Two legends of their respective fields join forces at halftime of the Super Bowl broadcast. Ninja and Jim Brown celebrate 100 years of the NFL.


Everyone’s favorite Fortnite Twitch streamer, Ninja, has scored another PR win for gamers. He will be featured in an NFL advertisement with legends like Jim Brown and present day players including Juju Smith-Schuster. Please take a look at the ad that just ran before the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show.

Check out this teaser that Ninja posted to his social media.

Jim Brown and Ninja have a lot of similarities in their respective fields when you really think about it. Brown actually got his start in competitive sports as a lacrosse player before finding his path to a legendary NFL career at Syracuse University. Jim Brown went on to win an NFL championship for the city of Cleveland, which is a lot like getting a Victory Royale.

Ninja also found early success in the early 2000s playing Halo 3 esports, before reaching a whole new level streaming Fortnite. Fortnite mania continues to spread across the world and Ninja has become a global ambassador for gamers.

It is a bit surreal to see a Twitch streamer be included in such a prestigious advertisement for the National Football League. The NFL is celebrating 100 years in 2019, and tonight’s Super Bowl LIII commercial kicks off the centennial celebration.

Be sure to tune in before the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show to see the full ad, but they hype train has already left the station as a result of Ninja’s teaser.

Fortnite, Ninja’s most streamed game, has had a great start to the year. Season 7 has brought back everyone’s favorite NFL skins, and last night Marshmello rocked Pleasant Park in a live concert special event.
