Tom Brady went into overtime for Ugg Australia.

Not only is the NFL MVP quarterback the face of the brand’s fall ad campaign but he’s also taken his spokesperson duties into the locker room. “I’ve given away a lot of slippers over the years to teammates,” he said at the Ugg men’s store opening in New York last week. “When you walk in in the morning and half the team is wearing the slippers you gave them, it’s pretty cool.”

So how does Brady handle pulling double-duty as a rep for Ugg and Under Armour? “Under Armour is for on the field and Ugg is for lifestyle,” he told Spy.

And after showing his acting chops recently in a viral spot for Under Armour, Brady will appear this September in Ugg’s print and outdoor ads, as well as an online video.
