Lions first round pick Ziggy Ansah wore his now infamous 3D glasses to the NFL Draft as a dare. And now the goofy-framed, no-lenses goggles are paying off. People at BYU, including head football coach Bronco Mendenhall, dared Ansah to wear the glasses that he was given when he saw “Thor” at the theatre in 2011.
On Friday, Ansah received a letter from IMAX congratulating him being the fifth overall selection. They then made him an offering to watch all 3D IMAX movies over the next year for free.
The letter read:
“We, at IMAX, couldn’t help but notice your keen sense of style at the NFL draft this year. You made quite a fashion statement with your pair of 3D glasses. As a member of the Detroit Lions, you share our love for the color blue and we would like to add an IMAX silver lining for you – we would love to celebrate your first year in the NFL with the opportunity to see all IMAX 3D movies on us for the next year.”
Just because Ansah is a Lion, he loves the color blue? Eh, whatever. If a guy who willing to wear those goofy things on the biggest day of his professional life, good for him. He deserved free IMAX movies for life.
