Austin Ekeler’s parody of Pro Bowl ads promotes conspiracy, corruption and change
NFL teams and players step up promotional campaigns to get votes for the Pro Bowl. Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler wants voters to look past all the messages and pick the right candidate.
In a fun political ad parody, Ekeler is described as a “candidate for change” and warns of an NFL conspiracy. An alumnus of the diminutive Western Colorado University, Ekeler has cited “great corruption” from big schools like Alabama and Georgia since Derrick Henry (Alabama), Josh Jacobs (Alabama) and Nick Chubb (Georgia) became AFC supporters recently.
Ekeler, who has 13 goals, even has the appropriate false modesty at being called a “voice for the working class”. Despite leading the league in touchdowns in 2021, Ekeler has never been to the Pro Bowl.
Maybe he is right and it is “time for a change”.
The big NFL doesn’t want you to see this.
