Two-and-a-half million dollars for 30 seconds? Nope, not the cost of a Dubai prostitute, but a screwing just the same—it's the sum that companies are forking over to advertise during Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday. But even at this exorbitant cost, advertisers still insist on using NFL players in their commercials. Haven't they learned? Ads with pro football jocks have offered up some of the biggest Ls in TV history. To continue our Complex Super Bowl countdown, check out our list of the biggest commercial fails by NFL athletes...

O.J. Simpson
Product: Hertz Rental Cars
Year: 1980
• OJ was Hertz's celeb spokesman back in the late-'70s through the mid-'80s. In this commercial, the Juice is on the run through the airport before taking flight through the roof of a car. Is there a joke here?

Jim McMahon
Product: Honda Scooters
Year: 1986
• Fresh off winning Super Bowl XX, the Chicago Bears QB did this "outrageous" commercial for Honda. We'll blame it on the cocaine alcohol.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ronnie Lott, Boomer Esiason, Warren Moon, Al Toon, Louis Lipps, Eric Dickerson
Product: Diet Coke
Year: 1989
• Athletes rapping or getting into anything rap-related besides just fandom is never a good look. Plus, the lines about Louis' lips and Eric's hips makes us think this Coke was too sweet to be diet.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Emmit Smith
Product: H-E-B Grocery Company Super Bowl Ad
Year: 2007
• That's what we call a "walking pause."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Carson Palmer
Product: John Morrell Sausages
Year: 2007
• The Bengals QB seems way too comfortable at measuring sausages.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brady Quinn
Product: EAS Protein Supplements
Year: 2007
• All those protein shakes and you still fucking suck.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Randy Moss
Product: Pony Sneakers
Year: 2008
• Moss went from the elite air of the Jordan Brand to the...uh, Pony. Bye-bye Wieden + Kennedy, hello WSHH unsigned hype rapper.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eli and Peyton Manning
Product: Oreo Double Stuff Cookies
Year: 2008
• Which Manning brother licks cream better? Thanks, Oreo, for answering a question that nobody in their right fucking mind wants to know the answer to.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matt Light, Justin Tuck, Ray Lewis
Product: SoBe Lifewater
Year: 2009
• And that's what we call a "dancing pause."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reggie Bush
Product: Subway Foot-Long Sandwich
Year: 2009
• Offering a foot-long to a youngin'? Where Chris Hansen at? Matter fact, where Kim at???
