New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on The Pat McAfee Show and labeled a fellow NFL player “Mr. Pfizer.”
That player is Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Kelce starred in a recent Pfizer advertisement where he promoted the flu shot and COVID-19 booster.
“Travis, did you know you can get this season’s COVID-19 shot when you get your shot?” someone asked Kelce in the commercial.
“Two things at once?” Kelce pondered.
“The CDC recommends getting your COVID and FLU SHOTS at the same visit if you’re due for both,” the ad said.
“Ask about getting this season’s COVID-19 shot when getting your flu shot,” the ad concluded.
In the commercial, Kelce posed with two band-aids representing two injections.

Travis Kelce shared the Pfizer advertisement on his Instagram with the following caption:
With my schedule, saving time is key. The CDC says you can get this season’s updated COVID-19 shot when you get your flu shot if you’re due for both. That’s why I got two shots in one stop! Ask your doctor or pharmacist if it would be right for you. You can also visit CDC’s vaccines.gov to learn more and schedule an appointment.

Can we also call Kelce “Mr. Bud Light” for this nauseating advertisement?
