Devin Hester's Under Armor commercial is more entertaining than his on-field performance in 2008

As I sat and watched this year's ESPYs at the Wrigleyville Rockit, through the litany of mindless commercials, this Under Armor offering featuring Devin Hester caught my eye:

The spot -- titled "On a Mission" -- features Hester tossing the first pitch at Wrigley Field, signing autographs at the River North Sports Authority, "doin' work" at Soldier Field and playing the soon-to-be-released Madden 10 -- all from the head-cam-ish perspective of Hester himself.

It's all somehow loosely tied into Hester's seemingly fake Twitter page.

I have no use for UA Fierce cleats -- the product actually being sold in the ad -- but I admit that this commercial actually makes me wish I did.

Is there any reason at all for him to wear a full suit of tights to bed, or is that product placement taken way, way, way too far?
