Eli Manning, Odell Beckham thrill with 'Dirty Dancing' spoof

Eli Manning, Odell Beckham thrill with 'Dirty Dancing' spoof

Watch the whole commercial above - which is about the National Football League and "many touchdowns to come" - for yourself and let us know what you think about these two putting on their dancing shoes.

It is easy to see why the Giants star is taking a rather forward approach with the three-time Pro Bowler. Of course, outside of this Super Bowl ad, an interracial same-sex pair dancing might still be considered a political act. The ad referenced a "remake" of "Crocodile Dundee" with Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride, the incredible Australian wine, and stunning beaches. But with quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Odell Beckham the final dance sequence of the movie "Dirty Dancing".

But surprisingly, it didn't come during the halftime show or in the midst of a touchdown celebration.

"I think we have an understanding of what we want to do", Beckham said.

Manning then throws Beckham a touchdown, and the music kicks in. "[They are] great athletes who are used to hard work", Dougherty said.

Angela Merkel warns 'serious differences' still blocking coalition deal
Merkel's Christian Democrats have been struggling to build a governing coaltion since the general election four months ago. Mrs Merkel said "important points" had to be cleared up.

The behind-the-scenes look at the making of a commercial is almost as amusing. We gotta do a little bit more exercise right in that area. It's too much sitting around thinking, 'Where am I going to be at?' I need to know where I can start buying furniture for a house.

Beckham first became eligible for a contract extension this offseason but was unable to reach an agreement with the Giants.

And you better believe the nail that iconic lift.

According to Dougherty, there were no stunt doubles and the shoot was done in a day and a half about two weeks ago.
