It seems a little counterproductive to put a bunch of dudes in a room, fill them with beer and vegan nachos, rev their testosterone up by watching the Big Game, and then have them all sit down and watch women in lingerie play touch football.
But such is the idea behind the “Lingerie Bowl,” an annual Super Bowl halftime alternative show that you can order on pay-per-view and enjoy in the comfort of your own easy chair. The game draws millions of viewers each year who tune in to watch a seven-on-seven tackle game between teams with names like “Los Angeles Temptation” and “Chicago Bliss.” The ladies dress in the traditional football gear (think helmets, shoulder/elbow/knee pads) with the added twist of, well, lingerie (garters, bras, and panties).
So, why are we telling you all this? Well, it was just announced that this year’s Lingerie Bowl will be offering a celebrity gift bag filled with PETA approved organic and natural skin care products. Skin Care for Athletes is the only vegan skin care line designed specifically for the men (and women) behind the protective gear. The brand will be presenting its 3-in-1 Tri-Body Wash and a Got Skin? gift card to the athletes and celebs who attend the weekend events.
“We are delighted to be presenting our 3-in-1 Tri-Body Wash, a product that is fitting for sports enthusiasts and athletes alike,” said the founder of the line, Taylor Sparks. She continued, “The Lingerie Bowl is a place where ‘got skin in the game?’ goes from fantasy to reality.”
We aren’t too sure how we feel about the Lingerie Bowl, but we are pleased that they’ll be promoting a vegan and eco-friendly product to their fans. That’s a touchdown for our team!
