Pringles Provides Jason Trusnik With Offseason Helmet


After being included in The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon's Superlatives ahead of the Seattle game, Vikings linebacker Jason Trusnik received form-fitting helmets from Pringles to test during the 2016 offseason.

Fallon, handing out yearbook-style superlatives to players from both teams, deemed Trusnik "Most Likely to wear a Pringles can as a helmet".

Although not up to NFL safety standards, Trusnik received a variety of options of Pringles cans — including one with a makeshift chinstrap — to hold him over during his down time.

Trusnik, who just completed his ninth NFL season, was on the receiving end of one of Fallon's punchlines for his 2015 headshot.

In eight regular season games with the Vikings, Trusnik finished with 10 special teams tackles, three tackles on defense and now a pantry full of chips.
