Tom Brady, watch ambassador: ‘Time is so valuable, we don’t live forever’

It’s been a while since I’ve really looked at Tom Brady’s face, and I have to ask: is it just me or does he look different/strange? What’s going on there? And it’s not just the weird Photoshop happening in that Instagram, that’s really how he looks now. It’s very odd. Anyway, as you can see, Tom’s new face is the new face of IWC Schaffhausen watches. He’s a global ambassador, which is always a nice, lucrative gig if you can get it. To promote his new gig, Tom chatted with People Magazine about watches, family and football. Some highlights:

The passage of time: “Time is so valuable and it’s so easy to forget how quickly it can pass us by. I try to keep that in mind, because it reminds you to prioritize the things you love. We don’t live forever, so we need to make the most of our time. I love my family so much and I love what I do for a living so much [that] I never, ever want to take those things for granted and I really try to treasure every second.”

He’s always been into watches: “I’ve always been a huge fan of IWC — in college, I actually had an IWC watch as my screensaver. So I guess you could say it’s been a long time coming! They’ve done some incredible things over the years and to be a part of the IWC family is a great honor for me.”

He loves wearing watches: “I’m pretty much always wearing a watch. Football is the only thing that kind of gets in the way of that. I’ve been into watches for so long, it almost feels weird not to have one on at this point. I enjoy the quick moment each morning when I’m picking out which one I’ll wear that day.”

The rest of the interview is just an advertisement for specific watches, so let’s just ignore that. On one side, if I was a professional athlete, I would shill whatever watch they paid me to shill and I would sell my love to the highest bidder. So I respect Tom’s shilling game for his new contract. On the other side, Tom is literally using his family image to sell watches, and of course he memorized the talking points of “I really try to treasure every SECOND” and “TIME is so valuable.” It’s cheesy AF. But good for him for getting even more money, I guess.

    I cringed at “its been a long time coming.” I wonder if they gave him specific time-related clichés to use, Lol.

  2. Lurker says:

    All I can picture/hear is “Dr. Schuffhausen?! Dr. Emil Shuffhausen!?!”

    How can we believe anything he shills? This is a man who has NEVER tasted a strawberry 🍓

  4. Tiffany says:

    Lurch….he is shaping up to look like Lurch.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      shaping up?!

      He’s ALWAYS looked like Lurch! LOL I’ve been saying that for years. hahahahaha!

      I was thinking, how’d they manage to photoshop him to look MORE like a Neanderthal?!

      and he’s wearing a shirt with HIMSELF ON IT.

      OMG WTF hahahahahah lurch

  5. Chica71 says:

    He looks like Matt Damon taller and skinnier brother. His football success and marriage to model makes him seem more attractive than he really is. Beauty via success and proximity. Okay looking . He tweaks and smooth something though

  6. Lucy2 says:

    He does look different. May be the haircut and aging.

  7. Nacho_friend says:

    It’s his haircut. They are trying to make him look smart by adding more hair on the top of his head so that giant hole where is brain is doesn’t show

  8. ME says:

    If they are gonna hire a white guy, then why do so many companies darken their skin for the ad? He’s nowhere near that color in real life ! So stupid. They turned him i to a Latin stud, which he is not.

    Ok, I’m glad that I’m not losing my mind. I was watching an interview with him during the first day of practice on Saturday. I kept telling my friend there was something different about his fact and he told me I was just a “hater”, haha. I mean….I am for sure, but something is different and it’s not just his unflattering haircut (he’s always looked better when he’s a bit shaggier, IMHO).
