Rob Gronkowski Really Wants to Fly a JetBlue Plane, And He Has His Reasons

Spot Celebrates Airline's Parntership With New England Patriots

Editor's Pick

JetBlue recently signed on as the official airline of the New England Patriots, and it celebrates the partnership in this spot featuring Patriots star player Rob Gronkowski. By coincidence, Gronkowski's uncle is JetBlue chief pilot Paul Hocking, so both star together in the ad, with Gronk asking his uncle whether he can have a go at flying the plane. Of course, the answer is no -- but he does get another role.

The spot, the first in a five-part series, is by Mullen Lowe and introduces the hashtag #GronkIsMyCoPilot.
