Two "All-Time Greats": Brett Favre And Coin Collecting

This commercial came on today during the 17-hour morning SportsCenter and ... wow. Just wow. Where to even begin? Is it the stolen Monday Night Football theme? The low rent "highlight" package at the beginning? The awesome URL? The bonus coin? The eight more bonus coins with handsome carrying case? This might be the classiest currency related marketing campaign since the September 11 $20 bill. I think the part that I like best, though, is the opportunity to forever memorialize Brett Favre using legal tender ... but only as a Green Bay Packer. I dare someone to buy a bag of Doritos at the Fond du Lac Walgreens with one of these babies and not get their ass handed to them six ways to Sunday by the cashier. • The Brett Favre Coin []
