Dan Marino Stars in Bindery’s Pun-Filled Spot for Bombas Merino Wool Socks

NYC-based indie film & content studio Bindery is behind a new campaign for sock company Bombas starring hall of fame quarterback Dan Marino. The broadcast and digital/social effort touts the DTC brand's super comfortable Merino Wool socks - just in time for football season and colder weather.

In the 30 second spot, titled “Best Damn Merinos,” confusion breaks out in a locker room after a man repeatedly declares that his Bombas Merino Wool socks are so comfortable, they really are the "best damn merinos.” The problem is that everyone thinks he’s referring to Dan Marino.

The payoff comes at the end of spot when Dan Marino himself appears with a tongue in cheek product plug. “Some might say they’re best damn merinos,” he says. “Not to be confused with me, the best Dan Marino.”

In addition to the 30 second spot, the campaign also includes a 60 second and two 15 second spots.

For every pair of socks it sells, Bombas donates a pair to a homeless shelter - where socks are the #1 most requested item. Bombas recently celebrated its 20 millionth pair donated.
