Pro Bowl Starter Vince Wilfork Completes TV Ads For Bob's Discount Furniture

Bob's Discount Furniture, the 2008 Furniture Retailer of the Year with stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island, announced that it just completed filming a series of new television commercials featuring New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork. The series of three-thirty second television commercials will start to run on television and cable stations during the week of December 29, 2008 throughout the Northeast.

The new Bob's Discount Furniture television commercials featuring Vince Wilfork, his wife Bianca, their son and daughter, were produced by the Bob's Discount Furniture in-house production team. The three television spots capture Vince and Bianca talking about their new Bob-O-Pedic mattresses, functional living room sectional and affordable children's bedroom furniture that was recently purchased at Bob's Discount Furniture.

The idea to create a series of television commercials with the Wilforks only recently developed after their visit to the Bob's Discount Furniture location in Bellingham, MA. "Bianca came into our store, selected several rooms of furniture and was so gracious about her shopping experience that she offered to help spread the word about Bob's Discount Furniture," explained Doug Robinson, manager, Bob's Discount Furniture, Bellingham, MA. "I found Vince and Bianca to be wonderful people and really down to earth."

"It wasn't overwhelming like other stores I've been in before, and the people were very helpful," said Bianca Wilfork describing her furniture shopping experience.

As a happy customer, Vince Wilfork concludes in the commercials, "We'll probably be making a few more trips out there."

Wilfork joined the New England Patriots football team in 2004 and has played in 61 games with 51 starts. In 2007, Wilfork earned his first career Pro Bowl selection and was named to the Associated Press All-Pro Second Team. He is an active member of the Mass Mentoring Partnership, a group dedicated to supporting mentoring in Massachusetts and also served as the honorary ringmaster for the Big Apple Circus in 2007 in a fundraising performance to benefit the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
