Toby Keith’s 1993 Dallas Cowboys Monday Night Football Intro Was Straight Fire

Man, it was a great morning to wake up as a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Last night, in the NFC Wild Card round, the Cowboys defeated Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it was never really close.

The Cowboys dominated their way to a score of 31-14, and the only blemish was that Cowboys kicker Brett Maher missed four damn extra points in a row.

Nevertheless, it was a great win, considering it was the first time the Cowboys have ever beaten Tom Brady, and it was their first road playoff win since 1993.

So, needless to say, I’ve found myself diving into the vaults for classic Cowboys videos all day, and I found this absolute GEM of a Monday Night Football commercial.

And who does the commercial feature?

Toby Keith himself.

Man, can we just spin it back to the ’90s, please? We’re talking the good ol’ days of permed mullets, flannels with the cut off sleeves, the radio actually played country music, and oh yeah… the Dallas Cowboys were actually America’s team.

Coming off his 1993 hit “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” the NFL and the Cowboys took the bull by the horns and saw a great opportunity to feature the hit song in their Monday Night Football intro.

In the video, Keith, rocking a badass permed mullet and a sweet vintage Cowboys jacket, twists the lyrics to his own song, as he sings about all the Cowboy greats at the time.

We’re talking Emmett Smith, Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach, and every other player who made the organization the most fun to watch in the league at the time.

Simpler times man, simpler times.
