Everybody knows that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was already considered one of the most popular players in the league for what he was capable of doing on the football field, but it’s safe to say his hilarious State Farm commercials over the last couple of years have taken his popularity to a whole new level with the “Discount Double Check.” For those of you who are football fans and have been living under a rock, the “Discount Double Check” was established after Rodgers’ touchdown celebration in which he pretends to put on a championship belt–which became extremely popular when the Packers won the Super Bowl a couple of years ago.
With his latest commercial for State Farm, Rodgers pulls the unimaginable and teams up with Chicago Bears fans while on an airplane–and it’s absolutely hysterical.
As you can see in the video above, Rodgers is caught in the middle of two Bears fans while on a plane, but these aren’t just any two Chicago fans. In fact, they happen to be two of the most popular Bears fans from Bill Swerski’s Superfans sketch on Saturday Night Live. These particular sketches were always hilarious as the members always discussed their die-hard love for Chicago sports (especially the Bears) and now–they were able to bring back the sketch in this latest hilarious State Farm commercial.
It’s rare to see Packers and Bears fans get along like this considering these two teams are one of the biggest rivals in sports, but State Farm deserves plenty of credit for pulling this one off. And of course, just like previous commercials from the past, State Farm will have everyone using the phrase “Daaa-ble Check” throughout the next couple of months.
