The Los Angeles Lakers have been trying their best to keep Dwight Howard in town. Whether it be giant billboards or draping over-sized Howard jerseys on local businesses, none of their tactics can compare to a local business that is trying to lure Howard to the Dallas Mavericks.
If Howard signs with Dallas, he will be receiving free chicken fingers for life.
From the Dallas Morning News:
On Monday, Raising Cane’s will kick off a campaign inviting Mavericks fans to help persuade Howard to sign with Dallas. The company has leased six electronic billboards to help publicize its cooked-up offer to Howard.
Raising Cane’s marketing manager Adam Reed says that if Howard signs with the Mavericks, “he will be welcome to come by any of our (20) local restaurants to enjoy seriously delicious chicken fingers at any time, on us, for the rest of his life.”
I don’t know about Dwight, but if I am ever in position to receive chicken fingers for life in exchange for taking a job, you can count me in.
Perhaps the most impressive part about all of this is that there will be even more outrageous offers for Howard as cities try to lure him to town, though it will be hard to find one more appealing than free chicken fingers for life.
