Meet Michael Vick, Nissan Salesman

Though he’s been a force on the football field this season, Philadelphia Eagles QB/ex-dogfighting impresario Michael Vick is still without any real endorsement deals. Wonder why. Anyhow, here’s the best he can do for now before leading the Eagles to an eventual playoff loss. This is a spot for a Nissan dealership in Woodbury, NJ, near his turf in the City of Brotherly Love and Vick as expected is an acting tour de force. Regarding the spot, which Vick is not getting paid for, the dealership’s executive manager, Tom McMenamin, tells USA Today, “They love it. They love the spot.” Your move, Nike.
