Looking for a stud tight end for your fantasy team? Rob Gronkowski can help you with that.
Can’t find your in-laws’ house? Yeah, Gronk can help you with that, too.
The New England Patriots tight end has teamed up with Dunkin’ Donuts and the navigation app Waze for a rather unique promotion, which started Monday. Users now can open the app and select Gronkowski as the voice to give them turn-by-turn directions as they head to their location.
Gronk recently hit the recording studio to give Waze some audio samples, and according to the press release, the party-loving tight end can direct drivers to the closest Dunkin’ Donuts to check out the chain’s new “Tailgater” sandwich.

The 26-year-old has done quite a lot for Dunkin’ this offseason, producing enough music videos to release an album, but it’s good to see him putting his acting chops to a bit more productive use.
Initial reviews of Gronk’s app cameo have been mixed, but if we had to choose to take directions from an NFL All-Pro or an automated robot, we’d probably go with the former.
