Endorsing The Almighty Dollar
Being a sponsored snowboarder is great, but it is even better when you can get non endemic companies to shell out wads of cash for you to endorse their product. Think of all the energy drink companies and how many of their riders become walking billboards. That should be reason enough to slap the ole Red Bull and see what Worx for you Rockstar! What’s even better is when you’re at such a level of awesome you can find a way to just attach your name to anything and make money.
Seems that Shaun White post losing his Red Bull sponsorship had a void that only something of his awesomeness could fill. Enter Shaun White Supply Co a brand that slaps Shaun’s name and likeness on everything they sell. Who hasn’t wanted an extreme Shaun White stunt scooter?
A gum endorsement cool that’s something we could get behind, tires yeah that’s understandable we drive to the mountains, but fucking scooters, bmx bikes, plastic ramps, and that shit? Come on man do you not have any sense of self worth or are you just cashing in as much as possible to save up for that legal dream team when you finally flip out and kill a hooker then bury her in the woods? I’m going with that latter option because that’s certainly the route he seems to be headed.
Just to give some people an idea about what Shaun has gotten himself into these products are made by D6 Sports which holds the license on Airwalk, Mongoose, Bratz, Ecko, and a slew of other crap. So maybe we’ll get a full line of horrible knock off tween Japanime inspired dolls or something of that nature. The only thing that makes sense is most of these brands can probably be found in your local Target so it’s just another money making venture for the flying tomato.
So for anyone wondering what happens to someone that loses a Red Bull contract this is what you can expect. Greed is good if you’re an over payed celebrity that has lost your way!
