The Cincinnati Bengals finally released their new uniforms after months of teasing them.
The promo video they put together really helped get fans excited, but overall the new simplified uniforms seem to speak for themselves. That hasn’t stopped fans from chiming in with their own praise for the presentation and new look.
I knew Ocho bc would be part of this lmao https://t.co/IG0yhNYmlz— Jay R (Bengals Perspective) (@JayRBP) April 19, 2021

I absolutely LOVE these and am officially pumped about next season.— Dadio Makdook (@dadiodefacto) April 19, 2021
But I can't help be just a little disappointed they have yet to release the glamor shots Elizabeth took of @John__Sheeran modeling the new unis at PBS. https://t.co/bla25ZHnWN

The first new uniforms in 17 years...— Bengals UK (@WhoDey_UK) April 19, 2021
They definitely look better on players than they do hanging on the back of a door.
Great work all round https://t.co/xoIDZcMlwq
An iconic cone
The pants did have our own John Sheeran draw a joking comparison to a very famous ice cream shop that can not be unseen. However, the look seems to still pull it off despite the similarities.

Analyzing the film
Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer also pointed out that Joe Burrow threw in the promotional video. As is often the case on twitter, the joke was missed by a few people who were ready to play doctor.
We don’t need to analyze the throw. It’s a promo video lol— Tyler Dragon (@TheTylerDragon) April 19, 2021
Players reacting to their new look
Then there are the players who were either excited to build up anticipation for their role in the video or reacting to the new uniforms they will be sporting.

Many fans were already in line when the promo video dropped on twitter, and you can tell fans are chomping at the bit to get their hands on some of the new jerseys on Day 1.
