Beats By Dre Presents: BE HEARD.

Beats By Dre wants you to know that its brand of headphones is quite popular with professional athletes. How popular? Enough to snag 23 of the world's most elite athletes for a new ad called "Be Heard." Soundtracked by the White Stripes anthem "Seven Nation Army," the chest-pounding spot, by Anomaly, features Tom Brady, Serena Williams, Simone Biles, Kevin Durant, Michael Phelps and a host of international stars as well.

In a statement, Brady lavished praise upon the song choice. "It's full of emotion," he said. "That beat. That rhythm. It gets everyone off their feet. It's a great feeling when that song comes on."

This is the second star-studded ad from Beats in recent months, following the "Got No Strings" spot in October. That one featured the song "I've Got No Strings," from Disney's Pinocchio, and starred Nicki Minaj, Steve Buscemi, Amber Roe, Pharrell Williams, Phelps, among others.

The "Be Heard" ad stars the following athletes, in order of appearance: Cam Newton, LeBron James, Serena Williams, Owen Farrell, Tom Brady, Kevin Debruyne, Kevin Durant, Anthony Joshua, Simone Biles, Nigel Sylvester, Conor McGregor, Antoine Griezmann, Thierry Henry, Leticia Bufoni, Antonio Conte, César Azpilicueta, Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Alexander Ovechkin, Michael Phelps and Arjen Robben.
