A year after leading the NFL with 20 rushing and receiving touchdowns, Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler is doing it again. He ranks second in the league with 13 rushing/receiving TDs and has played a big role in LA's top-10 offensive attack.
The Chargers want to make sure the league knows he's been at the center of this action. On Wednesday night, Los Angeles' social media team posted a hilarious hype video regarding Ekeler's Pro Bowl campaign. Check it out below.
The video is styled as one of those jarring, dramatic political ads. "They're not telling you the truth," the video begins, telling us that "Big NFL doesn't want you to see this."
After some continued digs at the doubt Ekeler's dealt with throughout his collegiate and NFL career, the theme of the video changes. It turns into the classic "Vote for Ekeler" video that we've seen in so many local political ads.
This is a pure masterpiece from the Chargers' social media team, and hopefully one that gets some attention. Ekeler was a Pro Bowl snub in 2021 despite his incredible touchdown total, and he deserves much better in 2022.
