The NFL has released an ad titled “Inside These Lines” to promote unity after President Trump’s divisive remarks at an Alabama rally on Friday, followed by a malicious tweet storm over the weekend.
The ad originally planned for Super Bowl LI was originally meant to “demonstrate the power of football to bring people together.”
“We think this is the single best response to demonstrate what we are about,” an NFL spokesman told CNN.
The main message in the ad is unity on the field.
“Inside these lines, we don’t have to come from the same place to help each other reach the same destination,” narrator Forest Whitaker says in the ad. “Inside these lines, we may have our differences, but recognize there’s more that unites us.”
