Spurs’ Parker to be pitch-man for Toupargel


When asked what he did on his summer vacation, San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker can say he photo: e-marketing.frplayed in an Olympic qualifying tournament and was a pitch man for food products.

That’s right, Parker will be a part of an advertising campaign for Toupargel, a food home delivery company, where Parker will be seen cooking for his friends. The advertisements will run this month and into November in France.

So watch out Emeril Lagasse. There’s a new chef in town.

However, this won’t be the first time Parker takes part in an ad campaign. Most recently he played God in Axe deodorant commercials.

Wonder what Parker will be cooking for his friends in the commercials? French cuisine? Perhaps he can whip up some Tex-Mex food from San Antonio.

All I know is he better be cooking up a good season for the Spurs and from the looks of his play for France at Eurobasket 2011, it would seem Parker is ready to go.
