The two fencers are Ben Bratton and Dwight Smith. This commercial for the Food Network aired in 2007.
Found it on the Facebook athlete page of Ben Bratton, who you can follow by “liking” at his page:

I can’t remember the last time I actually eat at Dairy Queen, but kudos to them for a funny fencing commercial!
Another brand jumps on the fencing train!
Special thanks to Ryan Arieta for alerting me to this! You should follow him on twitter and thank him! @LeftyFencerRyan
Thanks to Boston College Fencer Gabriella Goode for sending to me!
Another Italian fencer has a TV commercial. Andrea Baldini for Kappa. The Italians seem to be leading the way in terms of their athletes being known figures in their country’s culture and being utilized in advertising for products.
Special Thanks to twitter friend tetapoli for the heads up on this video!
Found this today. Interesting commercial for IBM from the 1996 Olympics. I think 2000 Olympic Saberist Akhi Spencer-El was in an IBM commercial in 2000…
Anyone know where to find it?
