NFL linemen seldom get endorsement opportunities – let alone recognized in public. So nice to know that when the people behind Dollar Shave Club found their latest moneymaker – they thought to enlist a couple NFL centers: the Cowboys’ Travis Frederick, the Chargers’ Nick Hardwick, the Vikings’ John Sullivan and the Bills’ Eric Wood.
And if the product being sold just happens to be butt wipes called “One Wipe Charlies” – well, what of it?
Apparently the company chose centers because they’re cheaper than quarterbacks, and hiring only four meant they could bypass business dealings with the NFL.
However, Dollar Shave CEO Mike Dubin had another justification for the choice: “Everyone’s got an eye on the center’s ass all season long,” he told Ad Age. “They have to keep that area clean, not just on the field but off the field.”
Dubin is apparently paying more attention to center ass than I am, but he has a point. You don’t want your quarterback to get a face full of mud butt. Unless it’s Sanchez.
