WATCH: James Franklin's new endorsement video is really something
James Franklin has already proven himself to be a quality football coach over the last five years at Penn State. But is he a good spokesperson?
Usually the two jobs go hand-in-hand. As a football coach, you’re required to be a spokesperson and the face of a program, a department and a university. But what about endorsing a different product? Say a snack company.
Penn State recently reached an agreement with Utz Snacks, a snack company operated out of Pennsylvania. To announce the agreement, Penn State naturally had Franklin promote the company in a short video.
And it sure is something.
The first part of the video is well-rehearsed and well-read. But in the final four seconds, that’s when Franklin got to show off some of his acting skills.
What do you think? Do you want Franklin as the face of your product?
