Super Star
Mascot gets national TV exposure
SuperFrog appeared in several Nokia commercials nationwide along side Snoop Dogg and Johnnie Cochran during the Sugar Bowl and other Bowl Championship Series games.

A frog meeting a queen might sound like a fairy tale, but it’s one that Jeff Crane will get to share for the rest of his life.

SuperFrog, played by Jeff Crane, assistant marketing director for athletics, was in a series of interactive Nokia commercials directed by filmmaker Guy Ritchie. Crane got to meet pop queen Madonna, who visited her husband, Ritchie, on the set in Los Angeles with their 3-year-old son, Rocco.
