When a sixth-grade student created a faux product featuring Houston Texans star J.J. Watt for a class project, little did he know the hulking defender would help him in a massive way.
Students in Paula Trippel’s reading and writing course were tasked with creating products and developing advertising techniques in order to sell them.
After tweeting about her student’s product which carried celebrity endorsement from Watt, the Texans defender followed up by creating a mock commercial in support of the project.
Haha that’s awesome. Had a couple extra minutes during lunch break today, so I figured maybe this would help boost his grade on the project. I also brought on a second endorser, but we need to work on his script a bit 😂😂 https://t.co/Di7LUZd3a5 pic.twitter.com/StAPmIbcfS— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) May 21, 2019
Watt even enlisted the help of teammate and wide receiver Will Fuller who also offered a ringing endorsement for the snack.
Trippel later noted that the project was awarded an A.
@CryarCats yes, definitely have to give an A on this project!!! You made our day and one student extremely excited and also many teachers!!! Thanks again for doing so much for the future generations!!! https://t.co/OyvOGTstY8— Trippel's Class (@Trippel_Class) May 21, 2019
Speaking to the Houston Chronicle Trippel said, "I thought it would be fun to tweet it to J.J., to see what happens, if anything.”
"I completely wasn't expecting a commercial for the product. It just shows how much he truly cares for children, to take the time to respond to my tweet,” Trippel added. “My school is totally stoked about getting a response from him."
This “A” is certainly worth hanging on the fridge.
