Derrick Henry takes a swing at Tim Tebow's baseball career at 'Heisman House' (Nissan Commercial)

Tim Tebow thinks the guys are going to a Halloween party costumed as "Star Wars" characters. But his "Heisman House" buddies are all dressed as Tim Tebow - except Derrick Henry. He's going as a baseball player.

Alabama's 2015 Heisman Trophy winner pokes fun at the baseball career of Florida's 2007 Heisman Trophy winner in the latest installment of Toyota's "Heisman House" commercials.

(It's really Nissan)

In the ad, Henry is dressed in a No. 15 baseball uniform with "Bugs" written on the front. Tebow spent the first half of the 2017 baseball season playing for the Columbia Fireflies of the South Atlantic League.

Tebow, who spent three seasons in the NFL, played his first season of pro baseball in 2017 in the New York Mets organization. He played 64 games with Single-A Columbia before moving to the St. Lucie Mets of the High-A Florida State League for 62 games. Tebow hit .226 with 21 runs, 10 doubles, two triples, eight home runs, 29 RBIs and two stolen bases in 2017.

I tend to like people who can laugh at themselves a little.

What a good natured commercial. Tebow is a good sport.

The article’s author, though...

Toyota? Really?

Henry was taking a swing at MICHAEL JORDAN as much OR MORE as at Tebow. The ‘BUGS’ part refers to the movie Space Jam.

The author is clueless.

I was going to say Tebow needs the money but he doesn’t. He’s single and exceedingly generous so I suspect his orphanages and other charities can use the money since he’s no longer an NFL star.

I was hoping Tebow might’ve gotten picked up by the Mets and then had him play a few games at Coney Island first. Would’ve been there for that. (I can afford Cyclones tickets, can’t afford Major League Baseball)
