Plot / Description

Deion Sanders Leon Sandcastle Superbowl XLVII Commercial 
This commercial begins with Deion Sanders sitting in a chair, while a makeup artist touches him up. In the background a TV is tuned to NFL Network with Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin discuss the rookie sensations of the 2012 season, wondering who will be the next great rookie to play in the NFL. Deion gets an idea, after looking at the wigs in the room, to become the next great "rookie". He arrives at the NFL Scouting Combine wearing an afro wig and a fake, bushy mustache, signing up under the name "Leon Sandcastle". Deion (Leon) impresses everyone, creating a lot of buzz, although no one knows where he came from. In the 2013 draft, the Kansas City Chiefs use their first draft pick on Leon Sandcastle.


What a year Luck, RG3 and Russell Wilson have had. 
Yeah, rookies now are more dominant than ever. 
More dominant than ever? Not by my rookie year. 
Oh, did you play football? 
Did I play football? Please. 
The only question left is, who will be the next rookie sensation? It's anybody's guess. 
I'm here for combine. 
Leon. Sand...castle. 
Who's the new kid? 
Sandcastle? Looks like a ugly Deion Sanders. 
No idea where this kid came from but he's really making a name for himself. 
This guy's talking about Sandcastle. 
The buzz on Sandcastle. 
He ran a 4-2. 
4-2 40? 
The guy's a freak. 
Are you attracted to him? 
We should watch the draft together. 
With the first pick in the 2013 NFL draft, The Kansas City Chiefs select Leon Sandcastle. 
Watch the Combine and Draft on NFL Network 
Have we ever met before? 
I don't think so. 
Because the next rookie sensation probably won't be Leon Sandcastle. 
(Lyrics) They call me a little grown up 
See I'm upset because I'm always been stuck 
But I don’t know what it is I’m without 
Guess I’m in love with always feeling down 
See the problem was I 
Was fully consumed 
With all of the petty things that I couldn’t do 
All of the plastic products, shows and woes 
I didn't ever show, I let it go 
So I listen while I’m told 
Sit back, don’t think, get high 
Take drink, sit back, don’t think 
The more I listen the deeper I sink 
I go higher and I say o-oh- 
Oooo I go higher 
This head that I hold
