What We're Watching: Packers Selling Stuff

What We're Watching: Packers Selling Stuff

Packers fans can never get enough of their favorite players.

We scour the interwebs for every ounce of information on them. From full feature articles to the most insignificant minutiae, the Packers are an all consuming obsession to many, and when they speak, people listen.

So it makes sense when companies hire players to sell stuff.

Over the past few days, two of our favorite Packers, Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings, have taken to the airwaves to sell stuff. Both commercials are marketing genius-as well as a little odd.

First we saw Greg Jennings enter the world of the surreal in an Old Spice commerical:

And later we saw Aaron Rodgers hanging with his buds in a Pizza Hut commercial:

Now I will freely admit that I am not a fan of either Old Spice or Pizza Hut, primarily because I'm not 80 and don't want to vomit after eating pizza. But if a Packer player says it's good stuff, maybe I'll consider buying from one of these companies.

Damn you marketing people!
