The Associated Press is reporting that Chad Ochocinco’s special-edition cereal has a typo where a phone-number for Feed the Children actually reaches a sex-line.
“The phone number is supposed to connect callers to Feed the Children, which benefits from sales of the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver’s cereal. But the box has the wrong toll-free prefix, meaning callers get a seductive-sounding woman who makes risque suggestions and then asks for a credit card number.”
According to Ochocinco, “…the number was clearly a mistake.” Mistake or not, this is pretty funny, and I couldn’t imagine it happening with another player.
The irony of this story comes from how Chad Ochocinco marketed the cereal on his website. His pitch: “Start your day with a lil suga!!!”
This makes it almost seem intentional.
