Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford stars in a pair of Dish Network ads posted on YouTube. Do you recognize the cute nurse swabbing his forehead? It’s his girlfriend Kelly Hall. Stafford winks at her with a grin.
The first ad titled “Matthew Stafford’s Day Job” is a classic mismatch scenario depicting the QB as a surgeon.
The other ad titled “Matthew Stafford’s Nightmare” is a version of the football “fairies” ad made popular by Deion Sanders and Peyton Manning.
Stafford is lost in the woods, the fairies warn him of the pitfalls of other cable TV providers. Inexplicably, creepy marionettes join in the warning. Maybe Stafford is scared of puppets?
What do you think of Stafford’s acting?
