If you’ve been watching TV latelyâ€”especially football gamesâ€”you’ve probably seen the commercials for Bud Light featuring the irrationally exuberant Jimmy Football.
Jimmy is seen hawking a bunch of seemingly fake â€˜tailgate-approvedâ€™ products in front of a highly excitable audience. The must-have items include such things as the Foozie, a foam finger/beer coozie; the Tailgate Companion, a jacket for a dog with sleeves for carrying cans of beer and condiments; and the Natural Fake Grass Can Coozie.
What you might not realize is, you can actually buy these silly-sounding gadgets online.
Another of the items, the Grooler, a contraption that combines a pop-up grill with dual coolersâ€”all on wheels, no lessâ€”has been sold out at Bud Light’s Tailgate Approved site for several weeks. It sells for â€˜onlyâ€™ $125.
Recession? What recession? The Grooler is apparently something America NEEDS. Am I right, Jimmy?
