NFL Fantasy Files: Unbelievably Cool Tricks in Genius Ads

Would you look at that!

Chris Cooley, Pro Bowl fullback for the Washington Redskins, put his hand through a wall and caught a football without seeing it.

Jason Campbell threw two footballs to two receivers by bouncing them off each other!

A cautious observer can tell that these tricks were made with computer graphics and a green screen, but they are still cool.

As I was searching for pictures, I actually found this interesting article that was written about how the ads were filmed:

I came across these ads, which were made by NFL.com before the start of the 2008 season, a few weeks ago when a friend urged my roommate and me to check them out. We thought they were cool, and while showing them to my other roommate for the first time tonight, I decided to make this slide show.

They can all be found on YouTube.com, which is the best way to fully enjoy the crazy stunts. I encourage anyone intrigued by the slideshow to go check them out.

I will attempt to recreate the stunts performed in the pictures. Also, I will give feedback to the obvious fake aspects of the ads that are still eerily entertaining to watch even when the observer knows as much.

These are my top-five ads.
