EDMONTON - It’s the spiral that’s going viral.

Reebok’s latest CFL advertising campaign, Let’s Play, features a commercial where Mike Reilly takes shots at football’s version of clay pigeons.

The Edmonton Eskimos quarterback throws passes through a series of tires tossed into the air in sequence by Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive end Jason Vega, B.C. Lions linebacker Adam Bighill and Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive lineman Brian Bulcke.

While it’s not exactly pro-wrestling legend Mr. Perfect throwing a Hail Mary touchdown pass to himself in front of then-Minnesota Vikings all-pro tight end Steve Jordan, Reilly did manage to fling some impressive tosses in what made for a fun little off-season training-style video.

Especially his last one, which made its way through all three tires as they flew through the air, clearing each one perfectly on the way to a jovial touchdown-like celebration by the bunch.

Perhaps a little too perfectly?
