First Boats, Now Cars; Odell Beckham Jr Goes Undercover As Lyft Driver
Between the infamous "boat" picture taken this week during a Miami adventure and this latest stunt, Odell Beckham Jr. has been killing it in the transportation game.
The elite wide receiver, set to partake in his first playoff game on Sunday afternoon, recently treated unsuspecting Lyft users to a "giant" surprise, donning a beanie and sunglasses to park in this promo for the San Francisco-based ridesharing company.
For all the talk Beckham gets about being "too sensitive", the third-year receiver pokes fun at himself while incognito, ripping on his "crazy hair" and "all that dancing around", all while these unsuspecting New York remain unfazed before OBJ finally reveals himself, much to their joy and shock.
Beckham Jr., named to his third consecutive Pro Bowl recently, landed into a small bit of hot water...perhaps literally...when a photo emerged of he and other Giants receivers partying on a boat in Miami, such festivities said to include rapper Trey Songz and Justin Bieber. The photo surfaced in the hours after the Giants' regular season finale, a 13-10 win over the Washington Redskins that kicked the Giants' divisional foes out of the playoffs.
However, Giants' teammates and coaches were quick to downplay the incident, insisting that it took place on the players' off day. though QB Eli Manning mentioned he was "disappointed" because "They didn't pack very well!"
