Despite his recent on and off-field woes, Brett Favre has picked up a new endorsement deal with Sprint, promoting its unlimited plan. Through an inside source at Sprint’s advertising agency, we were able to pick up this early draft of the script for the commercial, which will be shot in the next few weeks.
The commercial takes place outside the Vikings locker room, as Brett Favre talks to a female reporter. Both are holding phones.
REPORTER: Brett, great game today. How do you respond to the critics who say you’re too old to perform.
FAVRE: Check your phone for my answer.
(Reporter checks phone. Her eyes open wide and a look of horror crosses her face).
REPORTER: OH MY GOD! Is that a high resolution picture of you…
FARVE: Yup… in the pocket. Don’t worry about it, I switched to Sprint’s $69 (pauses and chuckles) 99 plan so I can send unlimited e-mails with as big a size of picture as I want.
REPORTER: Or as small.
FAVRE: You bet, sweet cheeks. Plus, with my new Samsung Epic 4G phone, I can track reporters with GPS and even send you high defintion video of all my best plays up the middle. I can even download and play video over the phone. Here, check out THIS sack. (Favre winks and turns his phone to the reporter.)
REPORTER: AIIIIIIIGGGGGHHHHH! (Runs out of locker room screaming).
FAVRE: Relax baby, it’s not costing me…. or you, any extra. It’s on the Now network, ’cause that’s when I want it.
VOICEOVER: For only $69.99, you can get meet all your harassment needs including unlimited texting, mobile internet, and e-mail. Only on Sprint’s Now network
