Baker Mayfield's new marketing deal includes one of the few animals that might be more famous than him. 

The Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback announced a new partnership with PSD Underwear that includes him standing in front of a Rolls-Royce with a tiger at his side:

Baker Mayfield @bakermayfield

Excited to announce my partnership with @PSDunderwear! Giving away 500 free pairs today. Tiger not included 😂. Give them a follow and shop my collection! https://t.co/Xy4RsMtas1 https://t.co/6lt56PeWjw

Per ESPN's Darren Rovell, the tiger in the ad is the same one that Mike Tyson kept as a pet in the 2009 movie The Hangover

Perhaps looking to send a message about what's in store for the Browns in 2018, The Hangover was a surprise box-office success with $467.4 million in worldwide earnings. 

Including the tiger in his ad could be Mayfield's way of trying to capitalize on that success to help the Browns avoid another 0-16 season.
