Aaron Rodgers has a new receiving partner, “Saturday Night Live” cast member Colin Jost.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback teams up with the “SNL” head writer and co-anchor of “Weekend Update” in a new ad for IZOD’s fall/holiday collection that debuted Wednesday.
Jost wrote the spot, which pokes fun at some of the more cliched moments in menswear advertising. Jost is the “handsome smarty-pants” and Rodgers in the “obligatory MVP cameo” for a backyard pick-up football game with models. Rodgers then shows up as the DJ for a special effects-driven ping pong moment at a party.
“Is Aaron Rodgers following me around?” Jost wonders.

It’s the latest project that shows off Rodgers’ comedic timing, only a matter of time before Rodgers hosts SNL. I’m feeling it happening this season.
