It hasn't taken long for retired quarterback Peyton Manning to find his calling off of the football field. The Super Bowl champion has starred in a number of commercials over the last few years. The latest one promotes youth football in a hilarious way alongside Eli Manning and a group of kids.

Peyton kicks the commercial off by stating "The Sheriff is here." Of course, that's the nickname he was given when he broke records with the Tennessee Volunteers in college. The kids aren't initially amused, especially when the Hall of Famer says that things are going to be done "the old school way."

That's when Eli chimes in from the sideline with a timely "boring" yell. The players opt to show Peyton how they play the game and it ends up in a touchdown dance-off. A dance-off that Peyton thinks he proved to be a natural at, but the kids said he was terrible. Everyone involved had fun, though.

Peyton and Eli are leading a new NFL campaign called “Play Football." It promotes a humorous outlook on the league’s youth program and has three short films attached to it. Each film will star Peyton as an ambassador and compare football of the past to what the sport has turned into today.

"This ‘NFL Play Football’ initiative allows me to be a part of something that will impact the future of the game so kids can fall in love with the game the way I did.”
