For over 20 years, whether you like it or not, Peyton Manning has been everywhere. From winning Super Bowls with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos to commercials to even hosting Saturday Night Live and the ESPYs, the spotlight always seems to find him. Lucky for us, that has produced some phenomenal moments.
The Sheriff and his brother Eli Manning have been in a few spots together, including a rap music video. Manning has also graced us with a chicken parm jingle and described himself as a 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback with a laser rocket arm.
Peyton Manning Commercials
Throughout his NFL career and after his retirement, Manning has done TV commercials for Buick, Papa John’s, Oreo, Nerf, Nationwide, Gatorade, DirecTV, ESPN’s SportsCenter, Sprint, and NBC for Sunday Night Football.
None of them, however, are as classic as his original MasterCard commercials.
Peyton Manning MasterCard Commercials
Peyton Manning commercials are always gold. The Manning brothers together is always a treat. Peyton’s SNL skit with the United Way is a classic, too. Nothing can top this legendary MasterCard commercial, though.
These scenes and quotes are absolutely dynamite:
“Let’s go insurance adjusters, let’s go!”
“Cut that meat! Cut that meat! Cut that meat!”
“And… It’s full!”
“You’re my favorite accountant. Tommy, please! You’re on my fantasy team. You’re my favorite worker. YES! WOO! Never gonna wash this hand. Look at that!”
The former NFL quarterback and future Hall of Fame inductee is truly one of a kind. Anything he touches proves he can sell anything. This commercial is no exception and it might be his best work yet.
Peyton Manning tailgating by himself. Peyton Manning cheering on a deli worker. Peyton Manning at a gas station. Peyton Manning outside of an office building. All of those things just sound funny by themselves, and it’s what makes the 30-second commercial so iconic still today.
