Ed Orgeron Makin’ Commercial Magic Again


We’re all more than familiar with the Hummer commercial that opened opportunities for then-Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron to join the Screen Actors Guild. I remember watching Orgeron’s coach’s show (because I welcomed the warm embrace of psychological agony) when the commercial first aired, and assumed I missed the part where I was whisked away to heaven on a chariot of fire because nothing on this Earth should be capable of providing that much delight.

Now that Orgeron has ascended to the head coaching throne again and showered blessing upon us as a people, it’s only a matter of time before some local Louisiana businesses enlist his services to help them move merchandise. Fingers crossed it’s an airboat dealership because it would go exactly like this:


“Hey, I’m Coach O. I just love my airboat.”



“I believe the airboat is the best boat on the bayou. Big, tough, aggressive, and it represents everything that we want at LSU.”



“I have my airboat, you need an airboat, tell ’em about it Jeaux-Jeaux.”



“Louisiana, they are here! The new Rodgers-Dabbs Airboss3 airboats are here!”



“The folks at Rodgers-Dabbs Airboat are first-team players. Come see ’em.”



“Rodgers-Dabss and airboats like nothing else. New Airboss3s starting at just $20,000!”
