Green Bay Packers cornerbacks Al Harris and Mike McKenzie are two of the dozen NFL stars who will appear in a 60-second commercial for the NFL Network during the broadcast of Super Bowl XXXVIII on CBS.
Appearing on the back of a boat named 'Cheesehead,' Harris and McKenzie take part in singing "Tomorrow," from the Broadway musical "Annie."
Other NFL personalities taking place include Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Bill Parcells, plus players Tony Gonzalez, Dante Hall and Priest Homles of the Kansas City Chiefs, Warren Sapp of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Terrell Owens of the San Francisco 49ers, among others.
In the commercial, the NFL stars - disappointed to not be playing in Super Bowl XXXVIII - take consolation that there's always next season.
But there isn't an offseason for the NFL network, which covers the NFL seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
The NFL Network will cover the Pro Bowl, NFL Combine, NFL Draft, training camps and preseason games.
"It's unprecedented to have this many stars appearing in a commercial," said Judy Fearing, senior vice president of marketing for NFL Network. "We're thrilled by the overwhelming positive response for our inaugural NFL Network Super Bowl spot, and look forward to sharing our singing sensations with the millions of viewers."
