Chicago Bears fan offers her pregnant belly to advertisers
CHICAGO â€” The most imaginative Super Bowl ad might not appear on television, but on Jennifer Gordon's pregnant belly.
The self-professed "die hard" Chicago Bears fan is offering up her nearly nine-months pregnant belly space for advertisers to paint. She'll showcase it at the Feb. 4 Super Bowl, when the Bears play the Indianapolis Colts in Miami.
All the Chicago woman wants in exchange is two tickets to the game.
Gordon, a publicist, has posted ads online on eBay and Craigslist detailing the ploy.
"I will agree to have your message painted on my belly visible to Super Bowl attendees and the millions of fans around the world who watch," her Craigslist ad reads.
The going rate for Super Bowl tickets is currently $3,000 to $5,000.
Gordon and her husband Mitch have already booked flights to Florida and have a place to stay. She also has a doctor's note giving her permission to fly, she said.
"I thought it was brilliant," Mitch Gordon said. "It's certainly cheaper than a Super Bowl ad. Isn't this what fanatics do?"
So far, Gordon has received about 45 inquiries.
The 35-year-old mom-to-be has only one condition.
"I have my standards," she said. "It can't have anything to do with Indianapolis or the Colts."
