A new business venture for NFL player Michael Vick has him making nice with a canine. Sort of.
Vick has teamed up with kid-rapper sensation Bow Wow to form a new line of hair products called WaveMasterz. He announced his new business Monday on Twitter:
According to the WaveMasterz website, the company will sell products like brushes, pomade, durags and skull caps. News of Vick and Bow's new business has already spiked a firestorm of tweets that have acknowledged the sheer irony and questioned the validity of the report.
Michael Vick is starting a line of hair products. I think it goes without saying he tests on animals.— reagan (@ReaEarnst2013) February 18, 2014
Sorry, but is it really in Michael Vick's best interest to partner up on a hair product line with a guy named Bow Wow?— Erik Childress (@EriktheMovieman) February 18, 2014
According to the company's newly created Instagram account, it touts itself as "the best thing since Air Jordans." They even have a logo:
Bow Wow should watch his back since Vick doesn't seem have a great track record when it comes to investments (or playing nice with dogs). In 2008, Vick declared bankruptcy after creditors found he was between $10 million and $50 million in debt. He was also jailed for 21 months when he pleaded guilty to being involved in an illegal dog fighting ring.
The former quarterback is about to enter free agency with the NFL. I guess we know now what he'll be doing if he doesn't find a new contract.
The new venture will kick off with a celebrity launch tour and apparently is going to "set ya city on fire." Dates and details to be determined, but we suggest you hide your pups.
