Twitter was set, er, atwitter last week when, during the telecast of the Cowboys-Giants game, cameras caught a man diligently cleaning Jerry Jones’s glasses before handing them back to the Dallas owner.
It appeared to be a very Mr. Burns-esque move by Jones--having a guy in his owners’ suite for the sole purpose of cleaning his glasses--but the man was later revealed to be Shy Anderson, Jones’s son in law, who was merely helping his father-in-law out.
Though Anderson maintains that it was no big deal, the store on the team’s official website has made sure that the bit of TV awkwardness won’t be forgotten about completely.
As of Wednesday morning, “Jerry Wipes” went on sale at DallasCowboys.com, a sort of specialized microfiber cloth for the cleaning of your--or, say, your father in law’s--glasses. (Or for those not so into Jerry himself, there are Cowboys wipes, which are pretty much the same thing sans Jerry's signature.)
"They can also be used for spontaneous shoe shining, if necessary," Anderson said, via the Dallas Observer.
"Just think - one day you're standing next to Jerry and he needs his glasses cleaned...just pull out a Jerry Wipe and you'll look like a champ!" crows the product description on the website.
Proceeds from “Jerry Wipes” go to the Salvation Army. You can get your own, if you’re into that sort of thing, right here.
