Aaron Rodgers and State farm Insurance have bonded and both have gained from the experience. This past week, the newest television commercial starring the Green Bay Packers quarterback, premiered with a jab at fun by paying homage to the John Goodman-led Saturday Night Live spoof on “Da Bears.”
Coupling the Bears spoof with Rodgers’ “Discount Double-Check” was pure genius. While Rodgers hasn’t worn the championship belt for three years, this commercial at least gives him the chance to have a little fun with it.
You may remember how we all got to this point. During the Packers’ magical run to Super XLV, Rodgers broke out the belt while celebrating touchdowns that season. The imaginary “wearing of the championship belt” caught on not only across Wisconsin, but across the nation.
That was when State Farm decided to join the fun and bring Rodgers in for that first commercial and all those since.
You remember the first – when Rodgers is dissed by the young couple who don’t care who he is. Then there’s the second featuring B.J. Raji and the famous hip slide dance he inaugurated on his pick-six against the Chicago Bears in the 2010 NFC Championship game. That was followed by the addition of Clay Matthews version. In a break from the teammate pieces, the last version involved Rodgers being put in his place by a classroom of children.
Now Rodgers has some fun with the Bears.
Below is the newest version. Enjoy.
