SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gridiron glory is no accident. It's the result of intense preparation, focused effort, and most importantly, making the right calls. And the wrong call can be the difference between the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. The same is true when it comes to fans' game day experience, especially when it involves pizza. With the big game approaching, it's more important than ever for fans to #maketherightcall, skip delivery and serve DIGIORNO® pizza to friends and family. That's why pro linebacker, Clay Matthews, has partnered with DIGIORNO and some of today's leading social media stars for a new video series that shows everyone precisely how to #maketherightcall and get the most out of game day.
Matthews stars in the new series called "Typical Game Day Party Guests" along with social media super stars, DeStorm Power, Colleen Evans and Ray William Johnson. In the videos Matthews moves from the defensive huddle to get-togethers at his home in a hilarious look at the wrong calls fans often make during the big game. Along the way, Matthews gives expert coaching advice to his social-savvy co-stars and shows them how easy it is to #maketherightcall.
With over 20 million combined subscribers on Vine and YouTube, these social media stars might be experts in entertaining, but, as the videos show, are lacking in their abilities to be the perfect guests. From overly enthusiastic high-fiving to social selfie taking, and perhaps worst of all, trying to order delivery, Matthews' big game gathering is filled with all kinds of wrong calls – that is until he brings in DIGIORNO pizza, hot and fresh-baked from his own oven.
When it comes to the big game, there is no one better than Matthews to coach fans on how to create championship get-togethers, as he understands the importance of making the right call -- both on and off the field.
"When I'm not playing, there are always people at my house watching football. That means there's always a need for food," says Matthews. "With DIGIORNO pizza, I'm able to provide fresh, great-tasting food in minutes, so that I can focus on enjoying time with my guests."
#MAKETHERIGHTCALL VIDEO CONTENT SERIES In a DIGIORNO first, the unique series brings together a larger-than-life sports personality and player with fan-favorite social media stars in content that is not only entertaining, but also pushes digital content boundaries with the use of social influencers.
