The Pacers are down 2-1 to the 8th seeded winners of 38 regular season games Atlanta Hawks and here is what Paul George had to say about his new commercial with Papa John’s via Pacers.com.
George, wearing an apron, opens up the commercial by walking over to Papa John’s founder and CEO John Schnatter, an Indiana native, and saying, “Papa, I’m ready to join your starting lineup.”
“John is an amazing person,” George said. “He’s a great guy. I’ve always been a fan of Papa. With him being with Peyton [Manning] and just the great light that he shined on Peyton, I wanted to be a part of it. I wanted to team up with such an organization as Papa John’s and he’s opened so many doors for me since I’ve been with them.”
The commercial starts running nationally on April 25th and part of George’s partnership with Papa John’s will benefit Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis through charity donations.
