Brian Wilson has made roughly $22 million over the course of his Major League career. He and his beard have earned fame together as the dynamic closer for the World Series-winning San Francisco Giants.
However, now Wilson is with the rival Los Angeles Dodgers and his famous beard has gotten just plain insane.
Is it possibly time to shave it off? One razor company believes so, and it is willing to pay to make it happen.
“His management feels we need to match his present salary of $1 million at a minimum,” said 800Razors.com co-founder and president Philip Masiello. “Over the weekend and continuing today, we have been in discussions with his management at MVP sports to finalize the terms under which Brian would participate in a beard shaving promotion and endorsement. The discussions commenced Friday and are continuing through today.”
Let us get this straight? There are people out there willing to pay Wilson a cool $1 million just to shave something off he can grow right back?
“His beard is iconic, we are in the quality razor industry and want to partner with other shaving icons to show how great our product is. If it can tackle shaving a beard like his, it can work wonders on the average man,” Masiello continued. “We are a young company out to change the shaving industry and have not done anything like this before and would be honored to have Brian be our first.”
Take the money and run, Wilson.
