You may have seen the images circulating around the net of some interesting new workouts for LeSean McCoy. The ones where he’s throwing 45-pound weights around like Frisbees and doing receiving drills while blindfolded. Well, it turns out—not very surprisingly—those were a sham.

That all originated from Shady’s own Twitter account, where finally on Monday he released video of a special address.

“I’m LeSean McCoy, and I’ve been using potential enhancing dryer sheets.”

Ugh. This is all about Bounce For Men, the latest advancement in dryer sheets. If you’re like me, you weren’t aware the technology or scent of dryer sheets required updating, or were in need of being manned up so to speak, so the product itself seems completely absurd and unnecessary.

McCoy’s acting doesn’t help. His fake news conference has all of the originality and energy of Michael Vick’s for Cure Auto Insurance, but with the lack of a convincing reading that harkens back to Mike Richards’ commercial for West German BMW when he was a member of the Flyers.

And some of these lines…

“When I got a whiff of that manly scent…”

“You need to smell like you can.”

Oh, Shady. You can’t begrudge a man for earning a paycheck, but this is truly awful. This reminds me of the time another former Flyer, Max Talbot, was shooting arrows through hockey pucks and doing one-fingered pushups, but it was all a stunt for the new Assassin’s Creed video game. The difference is those were actually kinda cool, and this business with McCoy was totally lame.
