Favre: Rise

Woodhead Entertainment’s first comedic short, Favre: Rise, was a viral hit.



Favre: Rise was Woodhead Entertainment’s first short: a parody mashup of the Lebron James’ “Rise” Nike Commercial and the Brett  Favre “sexting” scandal. It went on to receive over 4 million views online and was featured on ESPNews. The short was very well received by dozens of major blogs and websites. Here are a few:

“It’s well-written, well-produced and well-acted [by Sean Carrigan as an uncanny Brett Favre] — really, it’s the most well-executed parody we’ve seen in some time.” -HyperVocal.com

“It’s nothing but hilarious and genius.” -BleacherReport.com

“Production values are high, comedic content is plentiful.  The guys who made it should be making movies.” -NBCSports.com

“There are times when parodies are poorly done. Often, the ideas are great but they sorely lack in execution. But we can say without a shadow of a doubt that this Brett Favre parody is possibly the greatest one we’ve ever seen.” -Guyism.com
