Before wide receiver Antonio Brown is no longer a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, perhaps you would like to receive your very own personalized video message from him. If so, you’re in luck, as apparently Brown has now become a member of Cameo, a website where one can pay to receive personalized video messages from stars and athletes signed up to be providers.
Brown is apparently charging $500 per personalized video greeting and it looks like he’s already had a few takers even at that lofty price. According to Brown’s profile on Cameo, the wide receiver “typically responds within 8 hours.” You can see an example of one of his videos below, courtesy of a tweet by Josh Rowntree of KDKA-AM. It’s quite entertaining.
One would wonder why someone such as Brown would even waste his time with something such as this. After all, the wide receiver recently stated in a sit-down interview with Jeff Darlington of ESPN that he is incredibly secure from a financial standpoint at this point in his life.
“The Steelers probably gave me five contracts, including extensions, almost a $100 million and change,” Brown told Darlington in the interview. “I’m $30 million up cash, like, what do you want to tell me?”
I guess an easy $500 is an easy $500, right? If people are willing to pay that kind of money for a minute-long video, or however long the rules stipulate, why not accept it, right?
It would be interesting to see some fans pool some money together to get Brown to record a very creative greeting. As one follower suggested to me on Twitter, perhaps a video of Brown congratulating fellow Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster for winning the team MVP award would be funny.
With the splash this topic is now making on social media Monday afternoon, I wonder if Brown will quickly remove his Cameo profile. In the meantime, however, I’m interested to hear suggestions from those of you reading this post as to what would be a funny message to order from Brown. I look forward to reading the comments below.
