According to a report from CNN Money, the pizza hut chain, Papa John’s ended their sponsorship with the NFL.
It didn’t take long for another sponsor to arrive, though, as Pizza Hut declared their sponsorship with the NFL.
This is a good move for the league after former CEO of Papa John’s, John Schnatter, said the kneeling protests in the NFL were hurting his pizza sales.
“This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago,” Schnatter told investors at the time. “The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country.”
Since then, Schnatter relinquished his role as CEO, and the stock price of Papa John’s hasn’t been doing well.
But I’m not here to take a deep dive into this part of the story. I’m here, pleading for the greatest Joe Flacco commercial “Flacco’s Favorites”, to return to television’s everywhere.
Since this commercial aired, Joe Flacco won a Super Bowl and led the team to many post-season victories. Maybe this was the source of their success?
If this doesn’t hit TV’s across the nation, they most certainly need to recreate the video with Joe Flacco now. Let Joe Flacco become the phoenix, born again from the ashes of this previous commercial in a parody or recreation.
Please, Pizza Hut, use this commercial again.
