The leaves are green and gold--Packer player promotes Wisconsin fall tourism


This fall, a Green Bay Packer will invite Minnesotans to head east and enjoy a Wisconsin autumn.

 The Associated Press reports that wide receiver Jordy Nelson and his wife, Emily, will star in a tourism commercial promoting Wisconsin.

The state Department of Tourism said the ad will be directed by Wisconsin native Jerry Zucker. He directed "Airplane!" with his brother, David Zucker, who has directed two previous Wisconsin tourism ads.

The ad will run in Milwaukee, the Twin Cities and Chicago starting on Sept. 9.
