Under Armour shows commitment to Tom Brady in new ad

Under Armour emphasized its continuing commitment to Tom Brady Thursday night, releasing a new, 30-second promotional spot of the New England Patriots quarterback whose four-game suspension in the "Deflategate"  controversy was overturned a week earlier by a federal judge.

Under Armour said it debuted the ad during the national telecast of the Patriots game with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the opener of the NFL season.

The video depicts what appears to be an army of Bradys stretching and working out on multiple fields, closing with the message: "You are the sum of all your training."

The company said the ad is part of its recently-launched  "Rule Yourself" campaign. It said in a release that the spot "depicts Tom's relentless will and his intense commitment to training."

Golfer Jordan Spieth, NBA star Stephen Curry and ballet dancer Misty Copeland are also featured in the campaign, which depicts the athletes in training.

Under Armour has said it didn't waver in its commitment to Brady, whom it originally signed to an endorsement deal in 2010.

The league's investigation into the Patriots' handling of the game footballs resulted in a four-game suspension for Brady, one of the NFL's marquee players. But U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman overturned the suspension, which he called unfair.

Last year, the company also signed Brady's wife, model Gisele Bundchen, to an endorsement deal.
