As soon as the curtains closed on Peyton Manning's career with the Indianapolis Colts, the attention turned to Stanford Cardinal quarterback Andrew Luck, who is presumed to be the No. 1 overall pick by the Colts in the 2012 NFL Draft.
With so much focus on the Luck's pending future, Nike has taken the No. 1 prospect's situation to the world in his first ever commercial.
The majority of the opening of the ad does not show Luck's face, but instead we hear his voice in the background as he speaks about the multiple situations surrounding his path to the draft.
The commercial does a good job of avoiding the situation between Manning and him, aside from one line: "you can't tell if teams see a gamble, or their future franchise quarterback."
Besides that line, the commercial does nothing more than see Luck working out and doing what he has been doing to get ready for his next step in his career—the NFL.
The ending tag line of the ad has Luck making one last remark, stating "you do what you have always done: you make your Luck."
As everyone likely knows by now, the Colts released their four-time MVP quarterback in Manning last week, and now all the attention is turned to Luck.
There is no doubt at this point that Luck is seen as the next starting quarterback for the Colts franchise, and considering everything they gave up to set Luck as their future QB, many would say that the team is certainly taking a gamble.
To replace Manning, there really is no better option than Luck for the Colts. Whether or not it will payoff remains to be seen.
This is likely just the first of many commercials surrounding the QB, but it is clear that the Luck-era is just getting started.
