Butterfinger has declared its full-fledged support for Manny Pacquiao in the boxer’s upcoming battle against Floyd Mayweather on May 2, and has promised a nationwide payout for fans of one million of its Butterfinger peanut butter cups if he wins.
The brand has also announced a month-long campaign called “Get In Our Corner,” which invites fans to celebrate “this different kind of competitor.”
Butterfinger, by the way, regards itself as a “different kind of peanut butter cup" than a certain other chocolate cup.
“I never cut corners, and that is what makes Butterfinger Cups the best peanut butter cup – they don’t cut corners either,” Pacquiao announced in a press release. “Butterfinger and I always go the extra mile to distinguish ourselves. For us, being different is the difference.”
Here’s an important question, though: if Manny does win, will he personally receive his own million Butterfinger Cups? Not long ago, one of Pacquiao’s favorite restaurants in California offered the boxer free food for life if he won, so it wouldn’t be uncalled for.
