In Miami, where superstar athletes are becoming commonplace in the glitzy city, the Dolphins' Brandon Marshall will be broadcast not only on Sundays catching passes, but also in automotive advertisements promoting the Warren Henry automotive group’s line of luxury car dealerships.
Marshall has been named as the “Official Brand Ambassador" for the dealership, and will serve as spokesman for the luxury car dealership. He will appear in a series of television advertisements get to cruise around South Beach in a new 2011 Jaguar XJ, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Marshall has had a bit of a troublesome past, so it will be interesting to see if his image will improve with a change of scenery, and if his work in automotive advertising will lead to bigger and better endorsement deals.
The announcement got us poking around YouTube for some other notable marriages between NFL stars and local businesses. The results, as I am sure you can imagine, had us laughing.
