The folks at Madden NFL 17 must have paid up-front for the song-parody ad campaign they’ve been running, as another cringe-worthy video surfaced this week featuring Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown.

Appearing on Brown’s Twitter account, the ad features the wide receiver singing a parody of The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” While Brown’s commitment to the ad is praiseworthy, as a whole, the performance falls flat. But, I’m not going to blame Brown. This is EA’s fault. After the initial Von Miller parody of Bieber’s “Sorry,” which was aided by auto-tune, the campaign has steeply declined in quality. At this point, the past couple have felt more like watching karaoke night than what was probably a very expansive advertisement.

Just have the athletes lip-sync, EA. You don’t even have to tell them that’s what’s going to happen! Just replace their vocals later.

Madden refuses to stop song parodies, brings in Antonio Brown

Apparently nothing can stop EA Sports from creating these ads, but at least they're getting shorter.
