In terms of creative ways of raising awareness for your company, it doesn’t get much better than streaking across a baseball field. That’s exactly what Chris Blanco—a Marine veteran who owns a coffee, gear and accessories company called Freedom Hard—did.
Marine Veteran Streaks
American Military News reports that on July 27, Blanco and a few friends attended a MLB baseball game between the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers when Blanco decided to show off his true patriotic colors, stripping down to his American flag underwear and running across Minute Maid Park while getting chased by security.
The entire incident was caught on video, which you can see above. In addition, a photo posted to Freedom Hard’s Facebook page gives a close-up view of the stunt.
Blanco also put the following message on Facebook:
Friday was one heck of a cool day. Went to a baseball game with some friends and ended up showing a couple people how much of a patriotic psycho I am.
Of course, I like to show that patriotism on the biggest stages possible because, well…. patriotism is very important. In the process of me trying to build up the courage to “pull the trigger” I made a joke about raising money for bail money.
A GoFundMe account was made for people to help ‘bail me out of jail’ and I can assure you one thing… I will definitely not be accepting these funds to be used to pay for my patriotic shenanigans…
Instead, I’ve elected to have 100% of these funds raised to benefit a great organization, Camp4Heroes, Inc.. Not a penny will come to me…
Please check this great organization out because they are doing wonderful things in the community… We will probably close out the page in the coming days.
Lets make an impact!
Blanco certainly isn’t shy about showing his love for the red, white and blue. See some of his other greatest hits below:
