Video: Dish Network’s New “Go Back To College” Commercial Features Former LSU Star JaMarcus Russell
A few weeks ago, DISH Network unveiled a commercial that featured former college football stars Brian Bosworth, Matt Leinart and Heath Shuler – three players who could never seem to get over the hump at the professional level – to promote their mobile/tablet app that allows fans to watch live games from any device. Tuesday, the network put out its second advertisement for the service, and it features a new member of the group – former LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell.
Russell, as most of you are probably aware, is considered one of the biggest NFL busts of all-time. He was taken No. 1 overall in 2007 by the Oakland Raiders but found himself out of the league by 2009.
Still, it’s great to see that he can poke fun at himself. Who else will DISH convince to jump in on the campaign?
