  1. When I saw this yesterday, I did not like this at all. I actually thought it was a little misogynistic. However, after watching it again today, I like it. Very tongue in cheek. Besler has a good sense of humor.

  2. Hope he was paid well enough to take his wife out for a nice dinner because that’s commercial was way too long, tacky and just plain horrible.

  3. That’s one of the worst commercials I’ve ever seen.

    And I’m tired of women’s underwear designed by men who prefer men.

  4. I just noticed Besler only made $200k last year. Not sure how that is possible, I think he signed a new deal after the salaries were released? Anyway, this was weird as sh!t

      • Actually these are both wrong (though in some ways, they are both right).

        He signed a DP deal at the end of July. His old deal had him earning $200k per annum. The new deal moved the salary up to $600k + bonuses (or $633k, though this is on an annualized basis) , His “actual” blended compensation would therefore have been around $400k for 2014.

        In 2015, he is expected to make $650k in base salary, with performance incentives potentially increasing this number.

      • Plus he made a lot playing for USMNT and getting to the 2nd round. Given qualifications and wrld cup, he probably made another $400K

  5. Completely unrealistic advertisement. A centerback would never be allowed to take that kick, except for David Luiz.

  6. I watched it three times and can’t tell if it’s for giys or girls. I think I’m distracted by all the hot ass.

  7. My girlfriend and I just got our first pair. They are really comfortable, it feels like you are wearing nothing at all. Pricey though.

  8. I’m sure Besler’s wife was thrilled when she heard about the commercial and the filming of it.

    Also, when’s the last time Zusi or Feilhaber let Besler take a free kick?

      • Pretty calm here chief.
        I’m sure his wife is quite happy already w/his $633,250.00 paycheck and didn’t need the couple of thousand he made from this ad in order to be happy.

    • Or else she was pretty proud of him for starring in an underwear commercial, a la David Beckham and so many European footballers. My wife would be proud…not that Calvin Klein or Me Undies are exactly blowing up my phone 🙁
