Just nine months after Jordan Spieth signed a nice endorsement deal with AT&T, the 21-year-old Texan is featured in his first TV commercial with the Dallas-based company. Jordan is supporting the company’s “It Can Wait” campaign against texting and driving.
“I like this more,” Spieth said Monday night after his runner-up finish in the Texas Open that moved him to No. 4 in the world. “This is more genuine, more natural and has a bigger impact. It’s something the entire audience can do. It’s not, ‘Hey, go buy this smartphone.’ This is very simple.”
AT&T started its campaign in 2010 with minimal branding, an aggressive social media campaign and more than 6 million pledges not to text and drive. Many other athletes have got involved with the campaign
With much of it shot at Augusta National when he was playing a practice round earlier this month, the commercial with Spieth is a 30-second documentary of his life, hitting shots, putting and walking across the Hogan bridge. He also is seen arriving at an airport, in his hotel room and in a coffee shop, with his phone always in his hand, connected to the ones that are most important. After two days at the Masters, he is currently leading by 5 stokes.
Spieth says in the commercial ,”I feel so fortunate to be out on tour,”. “The only downside is being away from my friends and family. So I don’t know what I’d do without my phone. I use it to stay connected. I use it to remind me of what really matters most.
