PITTSBURGH, PA — It’s not unusual for football players to endorse products and merchandise from companies such as Nike, Gatorade, IBM and Mercedes-Benz. It is out of the ordinary when one raves about the quality of a condom brand.
Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has done just that on Instagram, comparing Trojan condoms to a well-tailored suit.
“I approach my custom suits like I approach everything — with high attention to detail. Every stitch, seam, and button has to line up perfectly,” Smith-Schuster stated in a Wednesday post. “Finding the perfect fit doesn’t stop with my suit game either. Because with Trojan UltraFit condoms, you know the only thing I won’t catch are (sexually transmitted infections).”
The post indicates that Smith-Schuster has a paid partnership with Trojan. It also provides information on where to purchase the brand and how to enter its UltraFit sweepstakes.
The post features a video of Smith-Schuster being fitted for a suit in a clothing store that, curiously, has Trojan condoms on its shelves and display tables. It also has the wide receiver detailing the variety of Trojans available to the consumer.
The fifth-year wide receiver out of the University of Southern California last year recorded 97 catches for 831 receiving yards. on 97 catches. He also scored a career-high nine touchdowns.
