There are many perks that come with winning the Super Bowl. In addition to the garish jewelry and the recognition of being apart of the NFL's best team, there are also the off-field perks: tables at the best restaurants, hobnobbing with celebrities, and if you're Aaron Rodgers -- Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the Green Bay Packers --  making auto insurance commercials with Milwaukee-area personal injury lawyer David Gruber.

We wish we were kidding.

Rodgers, clad in a suit that gives you the impression he's been working in a funeral home during the lockout, comes off equal parts awkward and uncomfortable. "David Gruber and I have been discussing what protections auto insurance provides if you're in an accident."

Impossibly, it gets worse from there.

Gruber goes on to regale us with the four types of coverage. We can't help but think that, if you heard this commercial while driving your car, you would, to quote Tommy Callahan, "wanna jerk the wheel into a [gosh darn] bridge abutment." 



But hey, everybody has a cause and maybe Aaron is passionate about auto insurance. And while we can't imagine the spot would encourage a person -- no matter how big a Packers fan they might be -- to go out and actually purchase auto insurance, we're positive it's a hit with people who have trouble sleeping.

Manning at least was kinda funny in some of his MasterCard commercials.  Especially the one where he acts like a fan at people's jobs.
