SNF Promo Featuring Neil Young’s “Old Man” Stars Brady!

Look at my life, old man; I’m not so different from you.

Those aren’t just the lyrics to Neil Young’s 1972 song “Old Man”; they’re the NBC commercial for Week 4’s Sunday Night Football matchup between Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the thirty-second commercial, American singer Beck performs Young’s song.

Tom Brady, 45, and Mahomes, 25, are featured in cutaways together since they’ve faced off five times since 2018 and each time has been exciting to watch.

Beck sings in the song’s chorus, “Old man, look at my life, I’m a lot like you were,” a fitting tribute to Brady’s impressive history and Mahomes’ meteoric rise.

Since the Buccaneers defeated Kansas City by a score of 31-9 in Super Bowl LV—the most lopsided of the encounters between the two—Brady now holds a 3-2 advantage over Mahomes.

In the final scene seeing both quarterbacks together, Mahomes approaches Brady after the Chiefs’ loss and tells him, “Hey, you’re a legend, man.”

Brady says, “Keep in touch” in response.
