Patrick Mahomes Finds Loophole to Promote Coors Light Without Breaking NFL Rule that Forbids It [Video]
Did you know NFL players are not allowed to drink beer in a commercial, star in a beer commercial, or directly endorse a beer?
The rule has been in place for many years, and only recently loosened up a little, allowing for a player's likeness in a beer ad. (That makes things a little convoluted)
If you've watched sports for years, you may have noticed a lot of retired players appearing in beer advertisements, but not active players.
Patrick Mahomes has now changed the game.
In a savvy move, the NFL superstar quarterback teamed up with Coors Light to find a loophole.
Who says he can't promote a flashlight called a Coors Light?
Not only does Coors Light beer get incredible branding with the commercial, they'll sell a few novelty flashlights as well, raise some money for charity, and come away from the ad looking like a winner.
Actually, it appears the flashlights have already sold out according to one Twitter user.
That only means the marketing campaign is an effective one.
