Editor's Pick

The mystery has been solved, so y'all can now rest easy and focus on the football. NFL analyst John Clayton has for too long been the subject of intense speculation, mostly regarding his hair and whether his dry on-air persona is just a facade. ESPN and Wieden & Kennedy New York lay the rumors to rest with the newest edition of the "This is SportCenter" campaign, which shows what exactly happens when the cameras stop rolling. O Positive's David Shane directs.

"This spot gives viewers a chance to peek behind the curtain. I’m glad we’re finally able to end the speculation and focus on what looks to be a fantastic NFL season," Clayton said in a statement. The spot will debut Monday, September 10, during Monday Night Football.
