Dax McCarty is late for soccer mom carpool, predictably gets picked on by friends in Continental Tires commercial | THE SIDELINE

Look, Dax, you're already the littlest guy on the team — maybe of every team you've ever played on in your life — thus you've probably already been picked on a time or two. So it might behoove you to be ready and show up on time when your teammate's mom rolls up in the soccer team carpool minivan to take you and your boys to "your big game."

Fortunately for the above Continental Tires commercial, which was released on Wednesday, the New York Red Bulls midfielder showed no signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) when playing the role of "Team Runt," and handled the bullying from buddies Heath Pearce, Chris Pontius and Dwayne De Rosario like a champ.

Continental Tires is the official tire of the 2013 MLS All-Star Game, MLS Cup and the US men's and women's national teams. Basically, Continental Tires loves soccer in America.
