When you’re hot, you’re hot, right down to your underwear.

Tim Tebow’s photogenic kisser – and nothing more – is taking center stage on a digital billboard advertising Jockey brand underwear and also welcoming the former Denver Bronco to his new team, the New York Jets.

“We Support Tebow & New York – Jockey,” reads the billboard, which stands on the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel that links Weehawken to Manhattan.

Some half a million commuters are expected to see the ad, reports ESPN.

Meanwhile on Monday at a news conference in the Jets field house, the press got its first in-person look at the real Tebow since he joined the team. Many of the questions had to do with incumbent quarterback – and fellow attention-grabber – Mark Sanchez, with whom Tebow says he’s exchanged texts.

“From my conversations about him he was excited to be working with me, and I am excited. I have a lot of respect for him as a person, football player,” Tebow said, according to the New York Post. “We talked about that. I am excited about that opportunity.”
