NFL: Cowboys' Romo does non-endorsement video spoof


Associated Press

DALLAS Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo stars in an online video spoof of not-so-real items he's not endorsing.

The video, provided Thursday to The Associated Press by funnyordie.com, opens with Romo alone on a football field, in a shirt and a cap with the logo of one of his real sponsors, Starter.

The 29-year-old athlete pokes fun at tabloids that have covered his love life. He also talks about a gasoline that tastes like chocolate, and vice versa.

Romo in October 2007 reached a six-year, $67.5 million contract with the Cowboys.

Funnyordie.com spokeswoman Carolyn Prousky says the video was shot last month and that Romo received no fee. Starter spokeswoman Maria Dolgetta says the sportswear maker sponsored the video.
