Making an Albertsons commercial at the store on 4000 Glade Road in Colleyville brought more attention than he bargained for.
Shoppers and store employees lined up to watch the making of the commercial, getting as close as they could to the action.
CBS11 Sports was invited to be behind the scenes as well.
Chad Campbell, President of MediaForce Creative Group and the director of the commercial, says Witten is the consummate professional.READ MORE: Texas Gov. Abbott Acknowledges Report Of Buffalo Bills Considering Austin As Possible Relocation Spot
“(Witten is) very easy to work with and a quick study at learning his lines,” said Campbell.
Possibly the funniest scene in the commercial is when Albertsons cake specialist Mara McCoy throws flour in Witten’s face.
Mara says she has never thrown anything on anyone, and was just hoping the Cowboys tight end didn’t get upset.
Not only did Witten not get upset, he took it like a champ, just as he does every Sunday on the field.MORE NEWS: Arlington Home Catches Fire During Sunday Storms
