Tide Cold Calls

This ad campaign, which began in April 2021 originally featured Stone COLD Steve Austin and ICE T making cold sales calls to celebrities such as Mark Messier, Annie Murphy, Vanilla Ice, Mr. T. [with a clever Hanes underwear tie-in] and most recently Gordon Ramsey to switch to cold water laundry washing to save money and the environment. Now to tie in the NFL, which has large laundry issues every week in the fall, P&G has added a third cold caller. Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan. The NFL does not mandate which laundry soap teams use. Fifteen of them do use Tide including the Cincinnati Bengals, which happens to be the city where P&G's headquarters are located. Even the Tide logo has been temporarily changed from the traditional red/yellow to blue/white.

Re: Tide Cold Calls

Steven Austin was the biggest name in wrestling, bar none.  I think he's second to Hulk Hogan for overall popularity. .

Hockey legend Mark Messier remains one of the best athletes when it comes to selling a product to an audience.

Oh lay oh lay oh lay oh lay. ;)

Messier accomplishments are unfortunately overshadowed.  He's third for all time points
