Anything Drew Brees Related Gets Airtime Here

We got a note from a marketing person at Country Time about an event involving Michael Waltrip and Drew Brees. An excerpt:

Today marks the first day of the "Campaign For A Name," and Drew Brees needs your help!! Drew Brees, would like Countrytime's new Half & Half beverage to be named after him, but he has stiff competition in Michael Waltrip. Check out the video below to learn more about the "Campaign for a Name," there will also be additional videos launching in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out. 

Please share with your readers if you feel they would like to help Brees win it all. In fact, the most active fan will win a chance to meet Drew Brees if he is fact the winner. In the following weeks we expect some others to enter the race as well, and we will keep you updated with any news. 

Normally, we ignore marketing emails -- especially ones as poorly-written as this one -- but given the combination of our admiration of Drew and Boilerdowd's undying love of auto racing, we thought we'd bring this to you. The video, after the jump, is also pretty well done for what it is. And I will say that no matter what he's advertising, Drew is always funny in these things. (The little kid version of Drew with the birthmark is especially funny to me.)

Video explaining (sort of) what we're voting on is as follows:

This video is labeled "Episode 1" over at Country Time's YouTube page, so I guess that means there are more coming.

So vote for Drew. Or, you know, open a lemonade stand. I'm still not sure what we're supposed to be doing.
