Broncos give Peyton Manning hard time over 'Chicken Parm' commercial

Friday December 5th, 2014


Peyton Manning is in a lot of commercials, and one of his best from this season involves him having a hard time getting the Nationwide insurance jingle out of his head.

The commercial's finest moment comes when Manning sings "chicken parm you taste so good" while digging in to a sandwich, a line which came back to haunt him in the team lunchroom, according to The Associated Press.

"We had some chicken parmesan in the lunch room the other day and he was loading it up and I said, 'Hey, what is that?'" Denver Broncos teammate Mitch Unrein recounted Wednesday.

"Oh, it's chicken 'parm,'" Manning replied.

"I was like, 'Oh, does it taste so good?" Unrein cracked.

Unrein admitted he was a little nervous about busting Manning's chops but the QB took it all in stride, conceding he had fallen perfectly into the DE's trap.
