Predictably, That Wes Welker-Butterfinger Stunt Crashed and Burned
“As a die-hard sports fan, I would like to sincerely apologize for a misguided and misdirected stunt that we did yesterday in Boston,”Hills wrote Wednesday. “In delivering a pile of Butterfinger bars to Copley Square in Boston, and a sign referencing Wes Welker, we were making a lighthearted gesture following Sunday’s hard fought game. We thought that Boston fans would get a laugh out of it. But, for many great Boston sports fans, it was taken offensively. Please accept my most sincere apologies.
“We got caught up in the moment, reacting to a suggestion that we thought would be funny, but we were wrong, and on behalf of everyone involved with Pawngo, I apologize.”
Butterfinger also rushed out to make it clear they had nothing to do with the lame prank, tweeting, “BTW Butterfinger had NOTHING to do w/ Boston stunt after the big game. A company bought our bars (like 7,200) & used 'em w/out our knowledge.”
There you go, Boston. You needed a victory and, dammit, you sure got one.
