Jordan Pettit Stars In New Monday Night Football Video
June 25, 2009 at 6:41 AM (PT)
MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL came to NASHVILLE earlier this week, as a brand-new video intro was filmed right here in MUSIC CITY. HANK WILLIAMS JR. and GLORIA ESTEFAN got a little help from some local extras to make the video come alive - one of which happens to be UNIVERSAL RECORDS SOUTH/NASHVILLE Northeast/Midwest Promo rep JORDAN PETTIT.
JORDAN tells ALL ACCESS that a really good friend of his, MARK BLOCK of THE BLOCK AGENCY in NASHVILLE, called him a few weeks ago to ask him if he'd like to be cast in the video. JORDAN, who played football for VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY, never thought he would be one of the few selected, but he and five others were cast as bronzed football players. The UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE dance team also was featured.
The video shoot lasted three days, with the last day wrapping up at 2a the next morning after a 14 hours on set. PETTIT said: "I don't know how they'll edit all of the pieces they shot - but I think the director liked me - and let's just say that there might be some really funny 'expression through movement' in the upcoming broadcast! That's all I can say for now!"
The MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL intro can be seen airing nationally on ESPN, as the regular season kicks off SEPTEMBER 14th. Reach out the new video star at firstname.lastname@example.org.
