All too often, fans are forced to sit through lifeless commercials in which athletes embarrass themselves in front of the camera while trying to promote a product.

But when an athlete nails the gig, it can turn out fantastically. Cue Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

Thanks to a stellar combination of decent acting and superb editing, Cutler hits a home run with a recently released commercial for NFL Women's Apparel.

If you never thought you'd see the day where this guy came off well on TV, well, think again.

Ah, the perks of being married to an actress.
