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.
It’s an honor to celebrate #NFL100. Be sure to watch the commercial before the #SBLIII halftime show. pic.twitter.com/iKOFDeqsaQ— Jim Brown (@JimBrownNFL32) February 3, 2019
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.
