Drew Brees Predicts Saints Super Bowl in Videos Produced Last Summer for the National Football Post
Super Bowl-bound quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, Drew Brees, offers his premonitions in two videos filmed in San Diego, CA, in July of 2009 for the National Football Post.

These comedic, web-based spots were filmed to promote the fantasy football site NFPost.com, where partial game proceeds benefit the Brees Dream Foundation, advancing research in the fight against cancer and providing care, education and opportunities for children in need.
Most notable in both spots are Breesʼ direct predictions to a first Super Bowl for the Saints. As sushi chef, he offers a tasty new dish - the “Saints Going To The Super Bowl” Roll. He states, “Sounds kind of interesting at first, but once you taste it, youʼll be a believer.” Brees now has many believers.
In the dentist commercial, he makes a follow-up appointment with his patient - “Come back in February, after the Super Bowl.” Veteran improv actors Chris Lusti and Ron Christopher Jones are also featured, both San Diego natives with long stage and screen portfolios.
“I donʼt think Drew will be preparing fish or fixing teeth any time soon, but he definitely has acting skills,” says David Romero, producer at Eddie Grace CMG, the Southern California agency specializing in creative media for TV and web, who produced the spots.
“Most of what we did that day was improv, which takes comedic timing and experience. Especially the sushi chef scene...we used a single take, no cuts, no edits...and he nailed it. Heʼs a natural. Iʼd say heʼs ready for SNL.”
Also of note, Breesʼ character offers his picks for players of the year, which not only included Saints teammates Marques Colston and Jeremy Shockey, but ex-teammate LaDainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers.
Filmed at actual businesses in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego County, the “Saints Going To The Super Bowl” Roll is sure to be a hit at Watami Sushi, where the sushi skit was filmed, and possibly restaurants nationwide. Collaborating on the motion graphics elements was Passage Productions, a national leader in 3D video technology and production.
