ESPN’s latest spots for This is SportsCenter play up Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller’s love for chickens as he brings his renowned poultry farming skills into the ESPN offices.
One promo features the birds as caged mascots such as The Famous San Diego Chicken, Pierre the Pelican from the New Orleans Pelicans, Harry the Hawk from the Atlanta Hawks, Louis the Cardinal from the University of Louisville and Baldwin the Eagle from Boston College.
And when one of them gets loose in the office, Miller must use his deft skills as an All-Pro outside linebacker to help return him to his cage.
In a second promo, he makes sure they don’t go hungry.
“Throughout my career I’ve seen guys in the SportsCenter commercial. Being asked to do one myself was a dream come true,” said Miller in a statement.
The spots were released in advance of the October 1 Broncos versus Kansas City Chiefs Monday Night Football game.
