Odell Beckham Jr. recorded a video of him laughing at his dirty dancing commercial with Eli Manning.
New York Giants stars Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. appeared in a commercial together during the Super Bowl in which they recreated the famous scene from Dirty Dancing. Teammate Landon Collins also made an appearance in the commercial.
Beckham, who has had a busy offseason between filming the commercial, rehabbing, and trying to recruit Le’Veon Bell to join the Giants, posted a video of his reaction to the commercial. The video is 12 seconds of him laughing hysterically, with a caption that says “God is good! I’m cryinnnnn (sic).”
The commercial featured Beckham catching a touchdown from Manning. As Manning went to congratulate him, they broke into a dance routine that featured the offensive line as Manning’s backup dancers and ended with Manning hoisting a running Beckham over his head.
The theme of the commercial was the start of the 2018 season for the teams that failed to reach the Super Bowl, and the Giants season got off to a striking success with the goof of a classic movie.
The hilarious commercial was a high point in what was a difficult year for the superstar, as injuries limited him to just four games. In those four games, he produced 25 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns, so he was robbed of what was shaping up to be a very productive season. For his career, he has 313 receptions for 4,424 yards and an amazing 38 touchdowns.
Beckham missed four games in his rookie season due to injury, but stayed healthy in 2015 and 2016 (he missed a game in 2015 due to suspension). However, the young star appears healthy entering the final season of his rookie contract. Both he and the Giants hope that he can bounce back to help the Giants return to prominence.
