Campbell and Hasselbeck: Together On Screen

There are so many amazingly juicy D.C.-Seattle story lines that the mind boggles. Zorn = Seattle. Mike Sellers = Seattle, plus, he made all those 12th man comments a year ago. Ryan Plackemeier and Mike Green and Shaun Alexander came, en masse, from Seattle. Pete Kendall played in Seattle. T.J. Duckett now plays for Seattle. Stump Mitchell coached in Seattle. Sherman Smith was drafted by Seattle. Shawn Springs starred for Seattle. D.C.'s own Velocity Girl released albums for Seattle label Sub Pop. I mean, will it ever end? Speaking of which, the Skins' season has ended in Seattle two of the past three years.

And that's all not even counting the booming Hasselbeck-Campbell collaboration for Expedia. Some of the outtakes (especially on Episode 1) struck me as legitimately funny; Episode 2 is below. But first, an explanation for why Hasselbeck and Campbell, courtesy Expedia spokeswoman Amanda Hoffman.

"Why Matt and Jason?" she wrote me. "Well, with Expedia HQ being located in the Seattle area, the Seahawks were a natural fit for us. Plus, we liked the idea of having one East Coast and one West Coast representative, and with 'two Washingtons,' the Hawks and Skins were a good match for the program."

Add this to the Geico thing, and Campbell is a budding marketing superstar.

Still waiting to do the Jason Campbell Soup commercials,

Random guy: This Campbell Soup Chili is delicious.
Jason: Thank you.
Random Guy: what, its not like you made it.
Jason: yes I did.
Random Guy: No you didn't
Jason then grabs the can and it has his picture on it.
Jason: explain that than.
Random Guy: Does not prove anything,
Random Guy starts to walk away. Jason then pegs him in the head with the can, ah la crocodile dundee.
