DENVER — Fans watching Sunday’s Broncos game may have thought Peyton Manning was endorsing Nebraska’s largest city after shouting the word “Omaha” more than forty times.

The clip, which has gone viral online, is throwing Omaha into the national and social media spotlight.

“We’ve been thinking about how we can get the word out to Peyton Manning to say thanks and see what we can send him,” said the President of Omaha’s Chamber of Commerce on Monday.

The organization is pouncing on the opportunity by pairing Manning’s words with a reminder to everyone that Omaha is open for business and visitors.

Companies including Omaha Steaks also took to social media on Monday to thank Manning for bringing the Omaha name to the forefront.

The Chamber of Commerce of Omaha is expected to publish a reply video to Manning on Thursday. It’s not clear if Manning will reuse the word “Omaha” during Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
