Entertainment Sports Tom Brady Jokes About 'Old' Athletes in Holiday FIFA World Cup Commercial A new commercial for the FIFA World Cup features Brady, who is joined by Jon Hamm, Ellie Kemper, Mariah Carey and a bevy of famous athletes to kick off the sporting event By Amanda Taylor Amanda Taylor Digital News Writer, PEOPLE People Editorial Guidelines Published on October 8, 2022 02:26 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Tom Brady isn't above poking some fun at himself. On Friday, Fox Sports released a star-studded commercial for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, with Brady, 45, stealing the spotlight with a solid joke about his age. After the clip showed soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a goal, it cut to Brady watching the game in his kitchen, while snacking. "He's getting kind of old, isn't he?" the quarterback said of 37-year-old Ronaldo before crunching down on some celery. Throughout his more than 20-year NFL career, Brady has been asked a lot about his age, as he currently holds the record as the oldest quarterback to win a playoff game. However, he doesn't consider it an issue. "I really think I can play as long as I want," Brady told Amazon Prime Video's Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm last fall. "I could literally play until I'm 50 or 55 if I wanted to."

The new commercial ties the World Cup to the holidays by involving Santa Claus, played by Jon Hamm, who prepares soccer fans to embrace the holidays with merch from their favorite teams, and the support of some other stars. "What are we standing around for?" the 51-year-old Hamm's Santa asks his Mrs. Claus, played by Ellie Kemper. "We've got work to do. We're going to need a ton of stars and lots of sweaters, some freshly baked cookies and maybe a song." The clip cuts next to Mariah Carey, who said her schedule is full. "Do you have any idea how busy I am this time of year?" the "All I Want for Christmas Is You" singer asked. The 2022 FIFA World Cup kicks off Nov. 20 and runs through Dec. 18 on various Fox Sports platforms.
