Todd Gurley has excelled so far in his rookie season, but his latest performance may be better than all the rest.
A 15-second Jolly Rancher ad, starring the former UGA running back, aired on Thursday, and it’s extremely entertaining.
The story behind Gurley starring in the commercial is great, too. Jolly Rancher contacted the St. Louis Rams’ rookie after he claimed the candy was his addiction on Twitter, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

Seeing the 6-foot-1, 227-pound back wear a tutu and sing “I’m a little teapot” was really funny, and shows that Gurley has a sense of humor about the whole thing.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is known to snack on Skittles during games. Don’t be surprised if Gurley does the same thing with Jolly Ranchers — when he’s not busy punishing opposing defenses, that is.
