Forrest Lamp is lighting it up with endorsements already

Forrest Lamp might be a pretty good NFL guard. He’s definitely a marketing genius.

The Western Kentucky offensive lineman, who could be a first-round pick tonight, has signed an endorsement deal with Los Angeles-based lighting retailer Lamps Plus.

“The opportunity to partner with Lamps Plus before my rookie NFL season, especially with my last name, is the perfect scenario,” Lamp said in a press release. “I’m confident that my girlfriend Natosha and I will have the best-decorated and most well-lit rookie home in our new team city!”

But wait, there’s more.

“While his name is perfect to endorse our company, we really like Forrest’s work ethic and enthusiasm,” Lamps Plus CEO Dennis Swanson added. “He will shine at the professional level.”

Of course, he’s still waiting to see how long he has to wait to walk into the spotlight, and if he goes too soon, there will be the inevitable shade.

But it’s a good deal for him, and it got us to mention Lamps Plus when we ordinarily wouldn’t have.

More than anything, however, it makes us wonder what Michigan tight end Jake Butt has up his, ummm, . . . sleeve.

    “My name’s Forrest. Forrest Lamp.”

    That’s an SNL skit waiting to happen.

    Lamps Plus is a great company, with Outstanding customer service. I live on the east coast and bought several lamps from them online.

    “Hi, I’m Forrest Lamp. Everybody calls me, Forrest Lamp.”

    Didn’t we go through this before with RGIII?

    Focusing on his brand instead of his game?

    This was not a good move by the rookie.

    Way better to wait until after he was drafted.

    Or better yet after his rookie season and has shown he can play the pro game.

    If you took a moment to google it, you’d find that Jake Butt actually has an endorsement deal with Charmin. No, really.

    Every once in a while, you get to write an article that has you grinning from ear to ear the entire time. This certainly seems like one of those articles.

    The Charmin thing about Butt is true. Just saw that on Cowherd.

    Lamp’s agent is working on another deal to have him represent forests around the world. That will be big.

  25. thegreatgabbert says: Apr 27, 2017 4:26 PM

    I’m going to name my kid Google. Just in case.

    Lamps Plus issuing a new model called the Natosha Lamp. It has an hourglass shape and is mainly used as a heat lamp. It’s hotter than hell.
