Sounds like you are in the advertising industry. I have been doing it for over 20 years now.

There are 2 possibilities here :

1) Wilson was used and paid like any celebrity to simply shoot the spot and end of story
2) Or Levi's may sponsor Wilson as a spokesperson for the Levi's brand under contract

Either way, it is still not wise for the part of the 9ers or even Levi's as it is a PR nightmare. It is just really awkward to explain and defuse it. One thing for sure, that spot will never be aired again. I sure hope the PR agencies are preparing the Q & A for both parties now. One thing for sure, the media is going to kill it cos is a massive piss-take.

LOL. I am sorry, you are making me laugh.

OK, so in your opinion, there is absolutely no conflict of interest right ?

So, based on your media answer, I suppose Levi's should carry on airing the Russell Wilson spot then ?

And what about on the part of the 9ers ? What if there was an uproar from the 9ers fans upon finding out Russell Wilson is in fact a spokeperson for the Levi's brand ?

And by the way what if and when the media decides to make a story out of this ? Would you for one be happy if you see headlines plastered across the media "49ers' New Stadium Partner Levi's Sponsors Divisional Rival Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson" ?

I don't know whether you remember Boris Becker, the tennis player ? He was sponsored by Ford and was caught speeding in a Porsche. It turned into a PR nightmare once local news turned international.

Oh well, if you think is hunky dory, then be it.

To me, there is a conflict of interest here, unless Levi's decides to drop Russell Wilson as a spokesperson for the brand now, it will be highly inappropriate.

Is like if Manchester United sells Old Trafford's naming rights to Levi's and yet Levi's sponsors the lead striker of Chelsea. That will never happen !!


Based upon your twenty years of experience, when exactly are we going to see this predicted PR nightmare plastered across the media?

It's a total PR nightmare!

There's non-stop news coverage of this disaster 24/7!!!!
Just in case anyone is interested in names that MIGHT have been on the stadium...

...I work for Brocade and am in an all-hands with the CEO. He just told the crowd that Brocade tried to get naming rights but were outbid.

Awe, man. There went our shot at the nickname I came up with for the stadium when they signed with Brocade. The Bro!

Thanks for sharing. The design of our new stadium is growing on me more and more. Can't wait for the 2014 season
I am going to be at the opener no matter the price or schedule.
I wouldn't mind the "LS&C Stadium", "The Levi" or even my personal favorite "The 501"

It's a tangent but God was I hoping IBM would have bought Brocade when the rumors were swirling! Now we're stuck with this BNT garbage.

I really thought one of the tech companies would have been the high bidder.

Everyone knows their names. No need to waste money on that.

Brocade never had a chance lol. I'm talking about the tech companies everyone was talking about (Google, Facebook, Apple).
