San Diego center Nick Hardwick said he thought the endorsement deal for flushable wipes was a brilliant idea.
San Diego Chargers Nick Hardwick, who recently signed an endorsement deal for flushable wipes, had fun with the topic when he met with the media Wednesday.
“No hesitation at all,” the professional center told NBC 7 when asked how long he considered agreeing to promote “One Wipe Charlies.”
“This is a great idea. Brillant by them to come to a center.”
Hardwick was approached by Dollar Shave Club along with three other NFL centers to be featured in their ad for what some may call “butt wipes.”
He said quarterback Philip Rivers was also excited to hear of his new personal hygiene.
The conversation quickly turned to bathroom etiquette with Hardwick sharing a lesson taught to him at a very young age.
“I’m a folder myself,” he said. “My dad taught me that at an early age. He said ‘Quit balling it up, you’re wasting our toilet paper.’”
On a serious note, Hardwick said the company has agreed to add a charity component to the endorsement deal.
“They’re donating to the charity – Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation – they’re donating $10 for every clean snap I give them,” Hardwick said.
The organization supports the surviving family members of fallen Marine Corps or federal law enforcement forces. They’re donating $1 for every #cleansnap he gets on Twitter.
