Looks Like Peyton Manning Will Be Passing the Papa John’s Torch to J.J. Watt (Video)

A new Papa John’s commercial has just been released (I know, OMG, right?).  And in it, we see a retired Peyton Manning making cupcakes for a roomful of rich people that happens to include Papa John Schnatter and groin injury recipient J.J. Watt.

I don’t want to read too much into a Papa John’s ad, because they’re not exactly swimming in subtext, but it seems as though the time is right for one incorrigible shill to pass off the Papa John’s spokesperson duties to another.

See for yourself in this ad:

If you were distracted by Papa John’s weaselly presence, that’s to be expected. Try watching it again, block out his face, and see if you can feel a passing of the torch taking place.

History in the making, folks…
