Mirror Image: Russell Wilson Reveals Inner Self As Face Of P&G's Braun Campaign

By Barry Janoff

August 7, 2014: Taking a page out of Michael Jackson's song, "Man in the Mirror," Russell Wilson, quarterback for the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, reveals his inner challenges as the face for a U.S. multi-media campaign for Braun to support the brand's male grooming products.

The deal gives Wilson two endorsement pacts with official NFL partner Procter & Gamble, parent company for Braun (the official electric shaver of the league) as well as Duracell, for which Wilson appears in a campaign that broke in late July.

The effort, "Face Greatness with Braun," was developed to "encourage men to be confident, to chase their dreams, and to never give up on their quest to achieve greatness," according to Braun, which said that Wilson "was instrumental in the development of our core concept of ‘facing greatness.'"

"Face Greatness" includes TV, print, Internet, a takeover of Braun's Web site, packaging and social media such as Facebook and Twitter, where visitors are encouraged to share what #FaceGreatness means to them.

“Whether on or off the field, I believe the difference between ‘good’ and ‘great’ is determined by your inner belief,” Wilson said in a statement. “I remember, as a child, watching my father’s morning shave routine in the mirror, and feeling truly inspired by the confident man I looked up to. He constantly encouraged me to chase my dreams, which is why I am excited to be part of Braun’s mission to give men the same confidence to go out and face greatness every day.”

A two-sport star at the University of Wisconsin, Wilson's dad passed away the night in 2010 when he was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the MLB draft. Two years later, he was selected by Seattle in the third round of 2012 NFL Draft, No. 75 overall.

Wilson also has deals that include Nike, Alaska Airlines and American Family insurance.

In the Braun spot, "Before You Can #FaceGreatness, You Have To Face Yourself," we see Wilson looking in a bathroom mirror and preparing to use a Braun electric shaver. We also hear him in an introspective voiceover.

"Before winning the Super Bowl, before being drafted by the Seahawks, even before picking up a football, I faced myself in the mirror and I believed in my dreams.," he says. "I see a champion in that mirror. I see confidence. I see drive. And I see a commitment to details. I face myself today, I'll face myself tomorrow. And I'll face myself every day as I fight to be the best quarterback in history. Because before you can face greatness, you have to face yourself." (See the full spot here.)

According to Brian Messerschmitt, brand manager for Braun N.A., "Russell Wilson is the perfect person to lead our #FaceGreatness campaign, as he has overcome tremendous challenges and obstacles to achieve greatness; in fact, he was instrumental in the development of our core concept of ‘facing greatness.'"

Messerschmitt said Braun believes "#FaceGreatness means having the courage and drive to never give up on your dreams. It requires passion and commitment, which are key attributes shared by Russell and the Braun brand.”
