JC’s obviously having a big year, but there aren’t many non-partisans who thought he was headed that way prior to the season. Count Geico among the believers.
During the broadcast of Skins domination in Philly, Fox played a new Geico spot starring Campbell and a Lumberg-esque agent. It was just OK for me, dawg, but the bigger picture is that a Redskins QB is the spokesman in a national advertising campaign, albeit one that also stars Joan Rivers and Peter Frampton. Campbell’s NFL.com Fantasy Files ad aside, I’m not sure that’s happened since the days of Joe Theismann, and, even then, I’m only guessing as he was such a natural. Just look at him.
Watch Campbell’s Geico ad and decide for yourself whether it’s a good one or not, but this much we know: Our guy is catching up quick to McNabb, Eli and Romo, both on the field and in the bank. And while he fancies himself a Denzel, we all know he’s more of a Billy Dee.
Update: Not sure how I forgot Doug Williams going to Disney World.
Update No. 2: Thanks to Meech, the ad is now found after the jump.
