Fans will get a glimpse of two of America’s biggest soccer stars as part of a 60-second commercial from Secret deodorant entitled “The Secret Kicker.”
The spot shows a football game in the final seconds with the team for which Dunn and Lloyd play trailing by one point with three seconds remaining. Following the game-winning kick, Lloyd (the kicker) and Dunn (the holder) remove their helmets to reveal their identity.
A stunned crowd goes momentarily silent but then erupts in cheers. The commercial ends with the tagline “Let’s Kick Inequality.”
During the summer of 2019, Lloyd made headlines after kicking some lengthy field goals while visiting a joint practice held by the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens. The U.S. Women’s National Team star said she was opened to kicking in the NFL, but she went unsigned.
In addition, the U.S. women have been locked in a battle with U.S. Soccer over the issue of equal pay and are seeking wages that equal those of the men’s U.S. team.
