Editor's Pick

With the approach of football season, the NFL debuts a warm and fuzzy commercial to celebrate its return. Created out of Grey New York and produced out of NFL Films, it captures the coming together of the football family, cutting together joyful scenes of players, coaches, fans, groundskeepers, owners and broadcasters singing Motley Crue's 1985 song "Home Sweet Home."

Cameos in the spot include former New York Giant-turned-talk show host Michael Strahan, Pittsburgh Steelers player Antonio Brown, NFL vet Charles Woodson, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the Denver Broncos' Von Miller.

The ad closes by announcing, "Families always come home, sweet home," followed by the NFL's tag "Football is Family."

The spot will make its broadcast debut on Saturday on ESPN during the Rams-Cowboys broadcast.
