“The Weevil” on ESPN, in Nationwide CommercialJuly 7th, 2009 by Joe Burgess
UAM alumni, fans, and supporters may disagree with the “stupider than an aardvark” analysis that “the Weevil” has been honored with, but still it is a good thing for UAMonticello to have their mascot featured on a national TV commercial campaign for KGB 542542, a text message based search engine that provides answers to its customers.
The commercial has been featured on ESPN and other networks, and features “the Weevil” with UAM’s permission. It has also been approved by NCAA athletic licensing procedures.
UAM media relations director, Jim Brewer describes the commercial as, “a great way to give our university national exposure.”
If the “stupider than an aardvark” is offensive, at least we have the pleasure of seeing our local hero beat the stuffing out of the aardvark at the end of the spot.
