Lindsey Jacobellis

Lindsey Jacobellis

If you watched the events of the Olympics Friday night, as we did, you saw Lindsey Jacobellis blow the Gold Medal by showing off at the very end, when she had all but won it.

Whatever your personal opinion, and however this defining moment is remembered in the future, one thing is certain...Corporate America is going to dump Lindsey Jacobellis from their post-Olympic advertising campaigns.

Dunkin’ Donuts, VISA, and Kellogg’s will probably send her a nice letter congratulating her on her Olympic Silver Medal, but will have a roomful of lawyers standing by to scrutinize every word in any contracts they may have already entered into with her for a way out of them.

Does Dunkin’ Donuts want their products associated with irrational thinking? “Have one of our Iced Latte’s and do something REALLY stupid..!”

Just picture the parody of VISA...Lindsey shopping, spending, and then forgetting to pay the charge card bills marked, “PAST DUE.”

Wheaties may be “Breakfast of Champions,” but does Kellogg’s want their flakes to be associated with an Olympic flake, and touted as the “Breakfast of Idiots?”

Yes, I do believe that Corporate America will avoid Lindsey Jacobellis like the Black Plague.

Except for Vonage.

The wedding photographer falling into the fountain...the guy cutting down the tree, onto his car...Lindsey Jacobellis blowing the Gold Medal at the Olympics.

Fit’s right in..!

VISA could still work...
Snowboard $300
Hat, Gloves, Scarf $50
Ticket to the winter olympics $700
Not having to turn tricks to win the gold medal
(as the Swiss chick walks by Jacobellis wearing a gold medal)

Or there's Nationwide...
Jacobellis signing a bunch of lucrative deals and then crashing is perfect for the "Life Comes at you fast" bits.
