VIDEO: Ryan Kerrigan Pranks Redskins Fans in Modell’s Commercial
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan’s latest endorsement involves loosely disguising himself as a sales associate for Modell’s Sporting Goods and trying to sway Redskins fans into buying his jersey over Robert Griffin III’s.
Kerrigan goes by the name “Marty Huggins” in the YouTube video released by Modell’s on Thursday, offering a predictable but nevertheless enjoyable three minutes of inquisitive fans skittish of his of sales advances due to his dwarfing physique.
In the video – similar in style to videos Modell’s has done with Danny Woodhead, Jrue Holiday and Landry Fields – Kerrigan approaches one woman as she gazes at a rack of jerseys on the wall. Subtitles fill in the blanks:
“It’s the most selling jersey in the NFL right now, right?” she asks.
“I think so. I think Kerrigan is,” Kerrigan replies holding up a Kerrigan jersey.
“No. No. No. No,” the woman reflexes. “RGIII is right now. The most-selling.”
The video was filmed on-location at the Modell’s in Springfield, according to the description on YouTube.
