From now on, when Red Sox star David Ortiz runs, he'll be running on Dunkin'.
Big Papi announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he has signed on as a spokesman for the Massachusetts-based coffee and doughnut chain Dunkin' Donuts.
"BIG news: I’m the new Dunkin’ Donuts spokesperson. Lots of Iced Coffees in my future! Follow @DunkinBoston & look for my commercials soon," he wrote.
The @DunkinBoston Twitter handle first broke the news on Monday, tweeting photos of Ortiz posing with iced coffees.
The Red Sox designated hitter also has a promotional deal with Samsung, and faced scrutiny earlier this month when he snapped a presidential selfie with Barack Obama using one of the company's smartphones in front of a national audience.
Ortiz denied that the photo had anything to do with the deal; however, Samsung took some credit for Ortiz’s tweet, telling the Boston Globe that it "was an honor to help [Ortiz] capture such an incredible and genuine moment of joy and excitement."
