Who needs Speedo and Ralph Lauren when you can have… Pine Brothers throat drops?!
As we reported on Tuesday, the disgraced swimmer lost four sponsorships including Airweave, a Japanese mattress company, and Gentle Hair Removal.
Well, it looks like things are coming up for Lochte (sort of)!
On Thursday, the lozenge company announced the Olympics star will appear in their print ads and commercials. Appropriately, their campaign will be about how the drops are “forgiving on your throat.” Oh boy…
According to CEO Rider McDowell:
“We all make mistakes, but they’re rarely given front-page scrutiny. He’s a great guy who has done incredible work with charities. I’m confident that Pine Bros. fans will support our decision to give Ryan a second chance.”
The 32-year-old wrote on Twitter that he’s looking forward to his new partnership:
As we wrote, authorities in Rio have officially charged Ryan with filing a false police report on August 14. He could face up to six-months in jail.
