Ravens Kicker Sings Opera, Raps, Hawks Dr. Pepper

In light of last night’s incredible performance by Ravens Kicker Justin Tucker, we thought we’d put this post from earlier this fall on the home page so you could learn a little more about the football hero. – The Eds.

In the NFL, the placekicker is the most specialized position. Often, kickers even get to leave practices early. So if that’s your job, it probably helps to have a hobby. Fortunately,  Justin Tucker has several.

The Raven — whose game-winning field goal in double-overtime against the Broncos sent the team to the AFC championship game last year — sings opera in no less than seven languages, raps, and dabbles in electronic music. Oh, and he also drinks a lot of Dr. Pepper. Or at least that’s the story in his nearly three-minute commercial for the soft drink’s “One of a Kind” campaign.

The ad features Tucker belting it out in a concert hall and rapping about Dr. Pepper in his car (which comes off like a freestyle, but it couldn’t be — right?). There’s also plenty of poetic, slow-motion kicking.
