“Pirate Water is both phenomenal and affordable, it only makes sense for us to make it our drink of choice,” said Grace O’Malley, co-host of PlanBri Uncut.
“If you want to start a party you only need one thing: Pirate Water,” said John “Feits” Feitelberg, co-host of KFC Radio.
“We love our partnership with the team at Barstool,” said Jaisen Freeman, co-founder/CEO Phusion Projects. “They’re the largest and most relevant media property out right now. We’ve been working with them for a few years and have seen how their reach not only hits our core consumer, but also converts to product sales. We’re very excited for this launch and to partner together for years to come.”
Phusion and Barstool Sports have been partners for over two years, integrating their Mamitas and Four Loko brands into several of Barstool’s franchises including PlanBri Uncut, Sundae Conversation with Caleb Pressley, & Neighborhood Eats with Rone.
