The Blessed Freak appears 17 seconds into this 30-second spot sporting a pair of Beats colored Carolina Panther-blue (or is it Auburn Tiger-navy?).
Among the all-star cast of other icons and entertainers is Lil Wayne, who has been known to (NSFW) “go H.A.M., Cam Newton” himself.
There’s also a photo of Cam eating a football on the Beats By Dre homepage.
