Thanks to Mint Mobile, everyone can take advantage of Bobby Bonilla Day.
In celebration of Bobby Bonilla’s embarrassing deal with the Mets, which pays $ 1.2 million annually from July 1, 2035, Mint Mobile is offering new customers “wireless wireless operator Bobbi Bonilla,” Bonilla said in a new commercial. The contract is for 25 years of service for $ 100 per year.
Bonilla starred in a series of commercials for Maximum Effort, the creative agency of actor Ryan Reynolds, to promote the deal, and he is a co-founder of Mint Mobile.
Known as a “baseball genius” in one ad, Bonilla offers “very long-term deals” for her pure physical condition. When someone tells her that Mint Mobile’s contract “really seems financially irresponsible,” Bonilla responds with a smile, “so be it.”
Bonilla, on the other hand, says she’s teaming up with Mint Mobile to reassure haters who sent her a hate letter – “often misspelled, but still harmful” – every 1 July.
“But this year will be different,” Bonilla said.
The Mets released Bonilla after the 1999 season, but still owed him the remaining $ 5.9 million in his contract. Instead of paying it off immediately, the two sides agreed to pay Bonila $ 1.19 million a year for 2011-2035.
“Today seemed like a good day for us to act like a wireless giant and add someone to a long-term contract,” Mint Mobile CMO Aron North said. “It wasn’t what we used to be, but we had to honor the biggest long-term contract. It was fun and we love to have fun. ”
According to the company, there is no limit on how many new subscribers can use the deal.
On Thursday morning, the Mets announced their smart promo related to Bonilla. Thanks to the franchise’s partnership with Airbnb, fans will have the opportunity to stay overnight in the City Field suite.
