Minor League Baseball Team Offers Flatulence Disguiser Promotion

SBgraphic_01.jpg

File this in the creative, fun – and maybe somewhat disturbing promotions department. A minor league baseball team, the Lake Elsinore Storm, is offering what can be described as “fart disguisers” at their “weekly all-you-can-eat Tuesday home games.”

From the press release (via Deadspin):

“You can probably deduce that All-You-Can-Eat ballpark food might lead to substantial gas subtle emissions, which is where corporate sponsor, Subtle Butt, enters the picture. Made of activated carbon fabric, each disposable 3.25″ square shield is held onto the inside of the underwear with two self-adhesive strips. Subtle Butt effectively filters flatulence, absorbing and neutralizing its odor.”

Therefore, the first 250 fans in attendance at every “Fat Tuesday” ballgame (the first is on April 14), will receive a free product sample of Subtle Butt.

Fart all you want, baseball fans, no one will know!
