Despite all the pressure around the Patriots, one of their shining stars from Super Bowl XLIX has taken time to poke a little fun at himself.

In the latest advert for Toyota, Edelman assumes the role of a car salesman and what follows is simply hilarious.

From trying to convince customers to buy cars then return them to mentioning that he caught the winning pass in the Super Bowl, Edelman shows he doesn't belong in a car showroom.

What really makes the advert though is that it is shot like a reality TV show and features interviews from his would be bosses.

While Edelman's advert is funny, Patriots fans will surely be hoping that he is more focused on football when it comes to Thursday night against the Steelers.
