Courtyard by Marriott came up with an interesting promotion. They gathered three fantasy football leagues and invited them to host their drafts at one of their locations in Philadelphia.
They told them that they would be photographed for press pictures. Right off the bat that should make you suspicious.
Well it was all an elaborate set up, with Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles going out there dressed as a waiter. It seemed to get sniffed out rather quickly and it didn’t really work for long.
The one time it seemed to work was when a guy told him he looked like Foles and went on to discuss his facial hair. Why he did get the resemblance right away, he seemed to be swayed by Foles talking his way out of it and a subsequent waiter playing it up even further.
It is kind of surprising that so many people sniffed out Foles so quickly, he isn’t necessarily the most recognizable of NFL stars. Of course the Courtyard hotel was in Philadelphia, so it was a bunch of Eagles fans.Next Impulse Sports
