Heading into the third week of the regular 2010 NFL season, more than likely you’ve had a chance to evaluate whether or not you regret some of the players you drafted for your fantasy team. However, there’s no need to give up so early. There’s still three plus months you have to pull your team together and make it to your league playoffs. And with the combination of any of these top ten ranked players on your roster such as Chris Johnson, Frank Gore, or Peyton Manning, the points will surely keep increasing.

Football Fanatics’ own Frankie Fanatic joined an old friend, Jaguars mascot Jaxson DeVille, as well as some new friends, to film this year’s Football Fanatics commercial.
The shoot, which drew over a dozen Football Fanatics employees and friends, took place at the Orange Park Mall parking lot on Thursday, August 26th. Despite the heat and humidity, the crew of volunteers joined together to pull off what we hope will be one of our best commercials yet.
Each year, as the football season draws near, Football Fanatics puts together a commercial to promote the local brick-and-mortar stores. The spots run on local broadcast and cable networks as well as various video sharing sites.
“The spots help Football Fanatics to promote new products, as well as showcase our stores,” said Mike Madden, producer of the spot. “We’ve also used them to introduce viewers to Frankie Fanatic, as well as various Football Fanatics employees.”
The latest spot features a new character, “Gearless” who makes the misstep of showing up at a tailgate party wearing a plain white polo shirt. Upon seeing Gearless, Frankie and Jaxson proceed to take Gearless to Football Fanatics where they try on an assortment of products before finally settling on a Jaguars jersey.
David Harrelson, who plays “Gearless”, is a store employee who appeared in his first commercial three years ago. Other commercials feature mostly store staff or their friends. The Tailgate Party setting was an opportunity to let other Football Fanatics employees – most of whom came from Marketing and Customer Service – get involved.
“Featuring employees is something we’ve done since I started producing the spots four years ago,” Madden said. “Sheri Weiss (marketing manager for the local retail stores) and I usually get together and hash out a script or an idea and then we just run with it. But featuring employees is always a big part of the production.”
In keeping with employee participation, this year’s commercial closes with a shot of all of the employees involved, yelling “Get your gear on…at Football Fanatics!”
