While most soccer stars are content getting their own line of cleats or creating goal celebration trademarks, Ronaldinho has gone a slightly different direction: He launched his very own line of condoms! The Brazil legend, who two years ago joined forces with the United Nations to educate the public about AIDS, went on his Facebook page to announce it:
"Guys, a condom with my signature on has hit the market, Atletico MG ‘Sex Free’. In partnership with sport against AIDS!"
The condoms, oddly named “Sex Free,” are Atletico Mineiro-themed, Ronnie’s current club. The box also carries the slogan “Eu sou Galo, meaning “I am Galo,” — a nickname for Mineiro’s supporters.”Galo” of course also translates to “rooster,” or “cock” if you will. Hey, Ronaldinho said it, not us.
As much as we love ‘Dinho though, his face is the last image we want to see before engaging in adult ‘wrestling” with our significant other.
And for the record, Ronnie is not the first soccer star who ventured into the condom market. You’ll be shocked to find out who it was:
