CBS Cameras caught New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez wiping a booger on the jacket of backup quarterback Mark Brunell during yesterday’s playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That booger has turned into a seven figure endorsement contract.
Undeterred by the controversy, Kleenex has offered Sanchez $1.5 million to endorse their product. Shooting will begin next week for a 30 second commercial to be premiered during next month’s Super Bowl. Brunell, the recipient of Sanchez’s booger, was also offered a sizable sum of money to appear in the commercial. A source within the Jets organization stated that Brunell turned down Kleenex’s offer “using a very loud voice and lots of profanity.”
