After linebacker Clay Matthews was done bitching about the lack of playmakers on the Green Bay Packers defense yesterday, he went and delivered some soup.
The whole thing — Matthews making the media rounds in the morning and delivering the soup in the afternoon — was a ploy. A ploy by Campbell’s Soup to get some publicity.
Matthews is a Chunky Soup pitchman and Campbell’s donated 40,000 cans of soup to food banks around the country as part of some program or another. So they sent the linebacker to West Hollywood to deliver some of that delicious and nutritious soup on Tuesday.
Oh, and to get his picture taken doing so, as well.
The soup went to the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition. They got more than 5,000 of the 40,000 cans that were handed out, which is the good part of the story.
Not that there’s anything wrong with a well-planned publicity stunt…
Don’t cut yourself with that box cutter, bro!
