Jordy Nelson’s knee injury will sideline him from playing football this season, but the Green Bay Packers wide receiver will still be the voice of tourism in Wisconsin.

Nelson will once again take the spotlight in this fall’s Wisconsin Department of Tourism TV commercial, which originally aired in 2013. The commercial captures Wisconsin’s fall beauty.

“Jordy epitomizes the Wisconsin work ethic. He returns to Kansas every off-season, where he puts in 12-hour days on the family farm,” said Department of Tourism secretary Stephanie Klett. “He brings warmth and the Wisconsin brand of fun to this commercial and we’re thrilled to bring it back for another season.”

The 90-second commercial has generated 275,000 views on YouTube since it first aired and has received positive response.
