NOT BAD FOR a lad from Roscommon.

Irish actor Chris O’Dowd is the face of Nike’s new ‘Choose Your Winter’ ad campaign, starring alongside US footballer Clint Dempsey and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

O’Dowd plays the role of TV news anchor predicting the end of civilisation because of plummeting temperatures, something only Nike’s new clothing line can prevent.

It’s a world away from the 1997 Connacht minor football final, that’s for sure.
