U.S. Olympics Gold Medalist Michael Phelps has been named as a spokesperson for Hong Bong, a bong company based in China.
Wi-Bei-Hi, CEO of Hong Bong, said that Phelps was the perfect representative for the product. He said that Phelps is athletic and popular and that the picture of Phelps smoking with a Hong Bong has increased sales by 25% since the picture was shown in newspapers worldwide.
Sizes of the bongs will be 50cm and 100cm. The Phelps Bongs will have a variety of models: The Butterfly, the Breaststroke, the Backstroke, and the Freestyle. Hong Bong will also introduce the Michael Phelps Medley Bong in October. The Medley Bong will be a combination of the other bongs and the parts will be interchangeable.
When asked about the endorsement, Michael Phelps said that it'll be "a hit."
