Packers Win Opener Over Saints And Rodgers Captured By A Lady Cougar
WISCONSINREPORT.COM (09/08/2011) - Aaron Rodgers throws 3 TDs as the Green Bay Packers outlast Saints 42-34. The Packer defense won the game by stopping the New Orleans Saints at the goal line in the final seconds of the season opener in Green Bay. It was an exciting game, to say the least, but, perhaps, when the dust settles, you, like some of us in this office, are wondering what is going on with Rodgers being wheeled out on a dolly in a TV commercial.
First we hear about Aaron Rodgers and Clay Mathews being immortalized on boxes of Wheaties, now, "Aaron Rodgers - Victim of a 'Cougar' Attack.
Associated Banc-Corp has launched their ad campaign featuring Super Bowl XLV MVP and Green Bay Packers' quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, promoting the bank's products and services. In the commercial, Rodgers seems a little worried, as if he's thinking, just what did he sign on for, anyway?
The TV, radio and newspaper advertising campaign, featuring Rodgers being "taken home" by a fan named Edith, will air in eight Wisconsin cities throughout September and October. The ads are expected to run during the week and during Packers TV and radio broadcasts. Print ads will appear in about 40 Wisconsin newspapers throughout the state.
Customers who open a Packers checking account will receive a package that includes a custom Aaron Rodgers bobble head, a limited edition Aaron Rodgers poster, and a pigskin checkbook cover with Rodgers' signature and the Packers logo, along with a free first order of Packers checks.
Customers who use their Packers debit MasterCard between September 6 and December 31 are automatically entered into the Ultimate Aaron Rodgers Experience "Swipestakes" for a chance to win tickets to all 2012 Packers home games, an invitation to a meet and greet with Aaron Rodgers, and a replica Super Bowl XLV ring paperweight.
"It's football time and Associated Bank is both proud of our longstanding partnership with the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, and to once again exclusively offer Packers checking to fans across the state," said Nick Papachristou, Director of Marketing.
"We're excited to launch a series of TV commercials and radio spots that feature Aaron Rodgers, as part of his multi-year partnership with Associated", the Director of Marketing added.
Existing customers may upgrade their accounts to Packers checking and receive the checks, the checkbook cover, and the Rodgers poster.
