David Bakhtiari and Trojan Condoms Are a Match-Made in Marketing Heaven
Your number for the spot you play will always be special. 76 was my number throughout high school then got 74 when I played in college. 76 has always carried a special place in my heart along with other key numbers like birth date and birth year. That said, no one likes their number more than David Bakhtiari of the Green Bay Packers. The dude loves the number ’69’ more than some people like to partake in the act of 69. And he leans into hard. Therefore, it’s not surprising that he tried to start a marketing partnership with Trojan Condoms. Honestly, it’s a no-brainer.
.@TrojanCondoms Yo. Why tf haven’t we make a commercial together?! I feel like this is a missed opportunity on both ends.. Like the exact opposite of my number. I’ll be waiting in my DMs.

Trojan responded with a ‘We’ll have our people call your people” and here we go. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen an NFL player promote condoms, but why the hell not? Nothing wrong with talking about practicing safe sex. There are studies all the time about how fans like to celebrate in the bedroom after a big win. Why not lean into that a little bit? Also, Bakhtiari, even if his number wasn’t 69, is the perfect ambassador for condoms. He protects Aaron Rodgers’ blindside all game long. Similar to what a condom does to avoid any surprise draft picks. Not sure how the NFL feels about their players being sponsored by condoms, but it’s worth a try.
