NFL Players Comb Daughters’ Hair For Super Bowl 2016 Commercial (VIDEO)
NFL players may be tough on the field, but in the latest Pantene ad for Super Bowl 2016, these athletes are showing off their softer side by styling their little girls’ hair.
In the four ads, three pros — Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams, Benjamin Watson of the New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten — are given several plays where the end zone is to complete a “Dad-do” on their daughters.
DeAngelo had double duty as he attacked “The Princess Puff” on tot Reyna and the “Twisted Pigtails” on young Rhiya.
Looks like the 32-year-old father did a good job!
As for Benjamin, his girl Grace was both “excited” and “nervous” for her “Braided Pigtails”, but it she seems pretty proud of her pop’s outcome — though he needed a re-do.

Even referee and daughter Naomi agreed it was “good.”
Finally when it came Jason’s turn to attack the “Ballerina Bun” on 3-year-old Landry, the Cowboys player was a bit frazzled and got an “illegal formation,” before attempting a braid.
Sadly, the 33-year-old fumbled on the braid, but ultimately got the ever-simple pigtail style, which he renamed “Daddy and Angel Bugs’ Magnificent Pigtails.”
It’s safe to say these men scored a touchdown with their Dad-Dos — and probably acquired a new level of respect for hairstylists everywhere.
