Brian Orakpo Goes Viral

No, Rex Grossman didn’t pass his bout of pneumonia on to his teammates.

Instead, Brian Orakpo has backed up his stellar commercial debut with two encore performances.

First, we have a healthy dose of Scrabble in the park:

Funny thing about that teacup, is that it would look like a mug if anyone else was holding it.

And too bad “Geico,” is a proper noun.  That’s a no-go in Scrabble.

His next commercial, which I actually haven’t seen on live TV yet, has some marketing gold for the Redskins sack-master:

It is my job to inform you that there is no truth to the rumor that O-Rak-Go, O-Snack-Po, nor Coat-Rack-Po will be sold in the Redskins team store.

Shhhh.

Brian Orakpo Gets His Big TV Spot Tonight

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 25, 2011 – 7:42 pm

In the latest iteration of Washington, D.C. sports stars in Geico insurance commercials, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will make his commercial debut tonight:

I confess that I don’t really understand the caveman shtick, but the commercial is pretty funny.  Keep an eye open for it while you’re refilling your chips and salsa.

A tip of the ol’ cap to Dan Steinberg, who was all over this one.
