Victor Cruz Is Really Jealous of Odell Beckham Jr.’s Success

New York Giants star is feeling some type of way in new commercial.

Published August 20, 2015

Odell Beckham Jr. ruined Victor Cruz's life.

With Beckham being an NFL phenom last season, racking up 1,305 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns — including the incredible one-handed grab against the Dallas Cowboys — he not only overshadowed every wide receiver in the NFL, but also snatched the spotlight from his New York Giants teammate Cruz.

In a new Foot Locker ad, Cruz hilariously seethes in jealousy when meeting face-to-face with Beckham and discussing the upcoming 2015 season.

"Can't wait to take the field with you this year," Cruz says to Beckham, before his inner voice adds, "And take back my life, which you stole."

When Beckham says, "We're going to have some good chemistry out there," Cruz's inner voice mumbles, "Speaking of chemistry, what do you put in that hair?"

Perhaps the best part of the commercial is when Beckham says, "If you think about it, we're lucky to be teammates" and Cruz's inner voice chimes in with, "Not as lucky as when you made that one-handed catch."

All jokes aside, Cruz and Beckham will look to be the most-feared wide receiving duo in the NFL this year.

Cruz is coming off a torn patellar tendon, having only played six games in 2014.
