As part of Microsoft’s latest Surface commercial that features people saying “honestly,” the Seattle Seahawks quarterback explains why he loves his Surface Pro 2 so much during what’s been a busy NFL offseason for the 25-year-old.
“It’s great for watching game film, drawing up plays,” he says from a barbershop chair. “It’s got OneNote, so I can stay on top of my to-do list, which has been absolutely absurd since the big game. With Skype, it’s just really easy to stay in touch with the kids I work with.”
Wilson has become the unofficial celebrity spokesperson for the Surface ever since he started promoting the tablet following Seattle’s Super Bowl win in February. Microsoft has a partnership with the NFL and is having Wilson tout the benefits of its tablet — however, this is first time he’s appeared in a Microsoft commercial.
Speaking of the Seahawks, the big news from today was that star cornerback Richard Sherman signed a four-year, $57.4 million contract extension with the team. Sherman, a big gamer himself, recently keynoted at the Adobe Summit marketing and innovation conference.
