Football legend Pele dribbled past many during his great career. But it seems he was at the receiving end when he signed up to endorse Viagra. The Brazilian was asked in a recent interview why he endorsed Viagra. He said he was not told that it was a drug for erectile dysfunction.
Pele said, “When I was invited to talk with the people from Pfizer, the company which produces Viagra, they said to me, ‘Listen, we have something that’s going to save the world’. What they told me was Viagra was a medicine for the heart, not for erection. I did the commercial for Pfizer, not for the product.”▪
