Ndamukong Suh is from Portland (where I live). He played college ball at Nebraska (where I’m from). The Detroit Lion tore up the NFL as a rookie last season. Now, he’s starring in the latest ad from Chrysler, courtesy of Wieden+Kennedy.
Like Eminem in the automaker’s hit Super Bowl ad, Suh stoically drives a Chrysler through the streets of his hometown — in this case, Portland — while a grizzly voice extols the virtues of hard work and humble beginnings.
In related news, MLive.com reports that Suh plans to participate in the upcoming Gumball 3000, a 10-country race sponsored by video game developer Ubisoft. Suh plans to drive either a Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger or Charger in the race.
