McKayla Maroney gets endorsement deal with Dr. Pepper Snapple

McKayla Maroney Impressed With New Endorsement Deal

McKayla Maroney is an Olympic athlete who won a silver medal during her appearance in the London Olympic Games. I point out that fact because it now appears that more people view Maroney as a girl with an annoying smirk rather than an impressive world class athlete.

When Maroney finally won her silver medal, the smirk on her face during the award ceremony became an almost instant meme. Suddenly there was literally nothing that could impress the young woman including a chance to meet the President of the United States.

By turning something that could have been embarrassing into something that people around the world now recognize, Maroney has made herself a very marketable commodity outside the gym. The Postgame reports that the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group has just signed Maroney to a new endorsement deal.

The ad campaign consists of making public appearances as well as social media mention of a new line of sodas that the company is preparing to officially unveil.

The company is rolling out new versions of five soft drinks that are already on the market, but this time they will all only be 10 calories per can.

Not quite a diet drink and not quite a regular soda, the Dr. Pepper Snapple group is putting out 10 calorie versions of 7Up, A&W, Canada Dry, RC, and Sunkist. These new drinks will be joining Dr. Pepper Ten, which has been on the market for a little while.

The purpose of the campaign is to show that these soft drinks have finally done something that being in the situation room during the final hunt for Osama Bin Laden could not. McKayla Maroney will turn her smirk upside down and appear impressed.
