Proud NFL partner VISA brings us this new ‘Passing the Torch’ TV commercial to kick-off the 2019 to 2020 football season, asking viewers “Where would you like to be?”.
The ad spot stars a bear mascot walking around a stadium on game day, scaring kids and adults alike as it goes. But after the bear stops by a refreshment stand to buy two ice creams, of course paying for them with a Visa card, we see that it’s, in fact, a woman inside the costume, accompanied by her daughter who’s dressed in a miniature version of the same outfit.
VISA has been partnering with the National Football League since way back in 1995 and announced earlier this year that they’d be the NFL’s Official Payment Services Technology Partner right through until 2025.
