'Oh boy': NFL 100 Super Bowl ad features epic lineup

In the '100-Year Game' commercial, dozens of players are gathered at a gala for the NFL's 100th season when things get a bit crazy.

As the NFL wraps up its 99th season with Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta, the league  is also kicking off a year-long celebration of its centennial. 

To launch what its calling the "NFL 100" campaign, a special commercial called 'The 100-Year Game' debuted during the Super Bowl broadcast. 

The epic two-minute spot features more than 40 current and former players, including 19 Hall of Famers and a total of 53 Super Bowl rings, according to the NFL.

The NFL had been dropping teaser trailers to give fans an idea of what was to come when everyone is gathered at the NFL’s 100th season gala and things get a bit out of hand.

Just some of the current and former players in the trailer include: Christian McCaffrey, Peyton Manning, Richard Sherman, Michael Strahan, Larry Fitzgerald, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marshawn Lynch, Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, Brian Urlacher, Jim Brown, Deion Sanders and many others. 

According to USA TODAY, some of the highlights from all of the football chaos includes Terry Bradshaw tossing a football 40 yards across the ballroom and hitting a chandelier and Tony Gonzalez running full speed into Von Miller.

And what sparks all the commotion? 

As Marshawn Lynch tries to taste the frosting on a massive cake, he knocks over the football on top and that's when things get going, according to the USA TODAY report. 

Even before the full trailer was released it certainly seemed like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady would be making a cameo, based on a teaser released Thursday featuring a hand with five Super Bowl rings. 

Those suspicions were confirmed Thursday night when Baker Mayfield posted his own tease of the commercial featuring Brady giving him some advice, along with more cameos from Rob Gronkowski, Drew Brees, Todd Gurley, Alvin Kamara, among others. 

Michael Strahan may even try to teach Peyton Manning a lesson or two.
