New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is the most unstoppable player in the NFL right now, but after watching his new Modell's Sporting Goods commercial, Gronk should stick to playing football instead of acting.
Gronk is a hilarious guy and is certainly a very marketable player both for the Patriots in the Boston area and the NFL on a national level.
But this commercial is extremely weak, and I don't know if Modell's is to blame for putting together a poor commercial, or if Gronk really cannot act. With Gronk's outgoing personality, I would think he can do a lot better than this.
To be honest though, Gronkowski could have showed a lot more emotion in this commercial. When he slams the remote on the ground, there wasn't enough anger.
If his famous spikes in the end zone after touchdowns had the level of power as this remote toss, no one would care about Gronking. He should have got out of his chair and slammed the remote in the ground and caused it to shatter into a million pieces. That's the kind of emotion this commercial needed to be effective.
The end of the commercial is also weak, and I know Gronk can do better. When he holds up the Gronk shirt, you can barely see what it looks like. There also isn't enough conviction in his plea to the fans to go to Modell's (which is a great store), get their shirts and start Gronking.
I know Gronkowski can do better than this, and it would be nice to see if Modell's has him to an even better commercial after the Patriots beat the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI.
