Aaron Rodgers: Commercial Pitchman

With Aaron Rodgers ascent to being regarded by many as the top quarterback in the NFL, more commercial opportunities are coming his way.  While watching the Packers play the Vikings last week in Wisconsin, Rodgers could be seen in commercials for Ford Truck, Associated Bank and State Farm Insurance.

Ad Man Aaron Rodgers

The Associated Bank ad campaign features a sweepstakes with the winning prize being the opportunity to spend one hour with Aaron Rodgers.  Customers opening a checking account at Associated Bank receive an Aaron Rodgers bobblehead, poster and checkbook cover.

Much like his performance on the field, Rodgers seems to be a quick study.  The State Farm Insurance commercial is particularly effective.  Rodgers’ likeability shines with the support of some good casting and writing.

Much like the grandmaster of sports pitchmen Peyton Manning, Rodgers seems to have a knack for being in front of the camera even when he’s not on the football field.  You have to think the ESPN advertising folks are planning some Aaron Rodgers appearances in their clever ads.
