Tim Tebow Signs as Spokesperson for Jockey Underwear


Tim Tebow, who in January shot highly-publicized anti-choice, anti-abortion ads for anti-gay evangelical group Focus on the Family, has signed a multi-year contract as the new spokesman for Jockey underwear, which sees a partner in Tebow's values.

Said Jockey Chairman and CEO Debra S. Waller: “Tim is a highly gifted athlete with a positive attitude and an admirable character. We at Jockey see a very bright future with Tim, and believe that he is an excellent representative for the brand. Tim is genuine, smart and driven and those qualities align well with Jockey. We look forward to building a long and collaborative relationship with him in the coming years.”

  2. is this a promo to buy Jockeys? or telling us to boycott? hard to tell sometimes...seems like everytime they put a hot guy the gays have amnesia.

  3. Uggh, he's actually perfect for their up-tighty whities and that picture is making him look a bit slow

  4. Aren't these the same guys that used Charlie Sheen in their ads? Nothing against Charlie, but his hooker habit seems the flip side of Tebow's halo.

  5. He is slow. He believes in holy sprits he can't see while not believing in fairies that he can see.

  6. Dave: that was brilliant!

  7. Thanks Dave, you made my morning. Perfectly said. And as usual, the gays will fawn all over him - bodies always trump politics.

  8. No more tightie-whities .....

  9. Time to boycott Jockey. Oh wait, I haven't bought a pair of Jockey's, well, ever. They're something my mom bought for me when I was eight.

  10. That picture speaks volumes. The mean-spiritness and self-righteousness of the religious. The ego—flaunting these silly bible verses on his eye black. The religious are dolts, but dangerous dolts.

  11. Damn you to hell, Crispy, for beating me to Jom Palmer.

  12. Am I the only one whose gaydar is pinging like crazy with this guy? He sure seems gay to me.

    I eagerly await the fallout when someone catches this jeebus lover worshiping the trouser trout and posts it on Facebook.

  13. the very textbook example of mixed feelings.

  14. As a college athlete, Tebow circumcised Filipino boys during a spring break missionary trip a few years ago. Maybe he'll send some tighty-whities to his victims.

  15. "Tim is genuine, smart and driven and those qualities align well with Jockey"

    What a fantastic example of corporate NothingSpeak.

    Bottom line: you think the bloke will sell more underwear than you're selling now. You don't give fuckall about anything else.

    I would boycott Jockey, except I don't wear underwear anyway...

  16. People still buy Jockeys?

    Posted by: MIke | Jul 28, 2010 9:43:27 AM

  17. Perfect for little timmy tebow-
    saving his naughty bits til marriage anyway-
    the perfect sanctimonious virgin for jebezus and jockey.

  18. Sunds like he's making a big step towards the dark end of the street, LOL!

  19. He's not even cute.

  20. I'm good with boycotting Jockey AND still perving on any ad-campaign featuring him shirtless and or in his drawers.

    win-win for me really as I've never bought Jockey to begin with.

    Posted by: dego | Jul 28, 2010 10:22:12 AM

  21. Never buying Jockey again.

  22. Over indulged mamma's boy on steroids. Tebow is going to have a very short shelf life.

    Posted by: Johninsf | Jul 28, 2010 10:39:10 AM

  23. Has Tebow made any anti-gay statements? I'm only aware of the FoF ad regarding abortion.

    Posted by: Mike | Jul 28, 2010 10:40:42 AM

  24. I really don't get the draw with this guy. There are many, many hotter athletes who aren't anti-choice, Christianist tools. Gentlemen, if you want to fawn over a hot, straight athlete, try Ben Cohen.

  25. what a tool tebow is. fuck jockey. let the bitch CEO know of your dissatisfaction.
