Saquon Barkley stars in new Oikos Triple Zero campaign

(Saquon Barkley stars in two new ads for Oikos from Lightning Orchard)

As the NFL nears what is surely to be a strange season due to COVID-19 pandemic, we are beginning to see the league’s stars appear in new advertising. Building on the success of its Super Bowl LIV (‘#YoGlutes’) and NFL Draft (‘Flex Your Cryceps’) ads, Oikos Triple Zero is releasing two new, hilariously relatable ads, starring New York Giants (and former Penn State star) running back Saquon Barkley, as part of its Stronger Makes Everything Better campaign.

The ads, created by New York-based Lightning Orchard, celebrate all forms of strength and the protein-packed products that help people stay strong, both on and off the field!

The two ads showcase Barkley flexing his protein-packed muscles as he musters the strength to tackle some of the toughest at-home challenges like struggling to open a stubborn pickle jar and hauling every grocery bag from the car to the kitchen in one trip. Watch the two new spots directed by Arts & Sciences Matt Aselton below:
