VIDEO: Ted Williams' Kraft Commercial Set To Debut During Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

When you tune into Sunday night's Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between No. 13 Nevada and Boston College (9 p.m. EST, ESPN), you'll obviously see the Wolfpack's Colin Kaepernick and Vai Taua, and the Eagles' Mark Herzlich and Luke Kuechly. But the most famous person Sunday night won't be on the field. And won't even be seen. He'll be heard. 

Ted Williams, the homeless man from Ohio with the golden voice who has captivated America this week, has not only already received a job offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but has also already recorded his first voiceover, for a new Kraft Macaroni & Cheese commercial, set to debut during the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl:

Lynne Galia, a spokeswoman for Northfield-based Kraft, said the company saw his YouTube video this week and began talking with its advertising agency about working Williams into the campaign.

"We were moved by his story and his amazing voice," she said, adding that it was "perfectly suited" for the mac and cheese campaign. "We were in the middle of making our TV spots and in a unique position to help Ted use his great voice and also provide him employment."
