Manning Gets Starring Role For P&G's Febreze (Not Peyton - His Mom)

NFL-themed ad from P&G for Febreze, which now will include Olivia Manning in marketing.September 10, 2009: It must be NFL season because the airwaves are beginning to fill with commercials starring people named Manning. Peyton's spot for DirecTV has been on since last month, his new spot for Sony with Justin Timberlake breaks this week, he and brother Eli are taking on Donald Trump in new Oreo's Double Stuf activation and the Wheaties Fuel cereal box with Peyton Manning, Kevin Garnett, Albert Pujols and others was just unveiled, all of which anticipate more Peyton Manning TV commercials to come during the NFL season. Eli himself stars in a spot for Citizen Watch and has several other endorsement deals.

Now, Olivia Manning, Peyton and Eli's mom and wife of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning', is getting into the act. Mrs. Manning will move front-and-center as the marketing spokesperson for Febreze, which is among the 13 brands that Procter & Gamble brought to the NFL as part of its new deal with the league. Financial details were not disclosed. She already has some sponsorship experience, including working with Sprint's NFL mobile service and Sears, and she had a bit role in a spot for ESPN's SportsCenter ("Wet Willie," in which the brothers harass each other during a tour of the studio).

The NFL-P&G alliance will focus on women, who are becoming more of a marketing target by the league. Putting the mom of two of the league's most high-profile quarterbacks is the first of more such tactics to come. "Now designated the official air freshener of the NFL, Febreze is stepping up to the line of scrimmage to get moms and NFL fans game-ready from NFL Kickoff all the way through Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida," P&G said in a statement.

According to the Cincinnati-based company, Febreze has teamed up with "America's 'first lady of football' Olivia Manning to share tips and solutions for everything from freshening the home on game day to eliminating sweat odors on sports gear." Although specific details were not yet revealed, marketing support could include print, Internet and experiential activation. Manning will be a public relations spokesperson for the campaign and "participate in a traditional and digital media relations program throughout the NFL 2009 season," but will not be affiliated with any advertising at this time, according to a company spokesperson.

In addition to its regular lines, Febreze has a Sport Workout Odor Eliminator SKU intended to "eliminate workout odors from shoes, apparel, and gear with . . . specially designed 'X-Sweat Technology' proven to neutralize sports odors at the source."  P&G's partnership with the NFL encompasses all products within the Febreze line-up.

"I'm excited to partner with Febreze to give moms like me a play for every occasion and easy solutions to freshen their homes on game day and every day," Olivia Manning said in a statement. "With a husband and three sons who were always active in sports, I know it's a tough job to eliminate odors that come home with athletes after they leave the field."
