EVEN IF AMERICAN football is not your thing, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the phenomenally successful Madden franchise which has been around in various guises for nearly 30 years.

However, they’ve never promoted the game quite like this with a fake action movie trailer that has the production values of a Hollywood blockbuster.

Featuring Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Julio Jones, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, Rex Ryan and a dinosaur, the star of the show is undoubtedly San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman.
