This is completely real. I know you're going to think what follows is just made up, but it is a completely legitimate promotion. And it may be the best promotion of all-time, or at least the weirdest.
Tarvaris Jackson took his lumps on Sunday at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, thanks to an offensive line that struggled in pass protection and his own tendency to hang onto the ball. He was probably sore and down in the dumps after the Seattle Seahawks loss, but he did receive a present on Tuesday!
Thanks to a promotion from NuVo condoms, Jackson received a nice box of rubbers for his trouble. This is not a joke or a test. This is the real deal. NuVo sent out a press release and everything (via Jerry Brewer)
Tarvaris Jackson's reward for absorbing 5 sacks? He's co-recipient of some NuVo condoms. It's their "extra protection" promotion.
What, the guy couldn't get some icy hot or a massage for getting his brains beat in? The best he gets is condoms? Congrats, Tarvaris. Sorry about the offensive line.
