Like Andrew Luck, Tony Romo, and the brothers Manning before him, Dak Prescott is latest quarterback to star in an ad for DirecTV’s Sunday Ticket. Prescott’s a good choice, too. He made the Cowboys awfully fun to watch last year, and he seems to have a great personality.
The only problem is that this commercial is weird as hell.
As a matter of fact, I want to run something by you before you even watch the commercial. Take a look at these still shots from the commercial. What the heck is going on here?
I asked one of my esteemed colleagues at SB Nation what he thought, without the context of watching the commercial.
“He's a leg with a head,” my pal Seth Rosenthal said, and he’s not wrong.
Prescott also doesn’t look all that thrilled about being a leg with a head, which seems like the only appropriate response.
But WHY is he a leg with a head? We asked Twitter, and here are some ideas.
I think it's pretty clear he's animorphing into Lowly Worm— NathanGaeddertBartel (@NathanBartel) August 9, 2017

For some folks, this just raised more questions.
Also, why in the world is the entire Falcons defense wearing non-eligible numbers!?— Pats Pulpit (@patspulpit) August 9, 2017
better question, is that a red-headed Charlie Day?— EJ ✭ (@eroccjohnson) August 9, 2017
Do me a favor: Don’t watch the commercial just yet, and just tell us what you think is happening with Prescott in the comments.
