A light-hearted threat of legal action got soccer club Wrexham AFC 50 boxes of famous Ted Lasso biscuits. In a recent episode of Ted Lasso season 2, Jeremy Swift’s character Higgins made fun of the Wrexham AFC ownership by actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
In response, the actors wrote a letter to Apple TV+ asking the team to redeem itself by sending ” 2 LARGE boxes of Ted Lasso’s biscuits to the Racecourse Ground, Mold Rd. Wrexham LL11 2AH, United Kingdom before the Wrexham AFC season begins on Saturday, August 21st at 3 pm.” And the team did more than that.
Wrexham AFC team finds it difficult to accommodate 50 boxes of Ted Lasso biscuits
Although the redemption biscuits did not receive the club on time, they were a lot more than the demanded number of boxes. 50 pink boxes reached the club’s team on September 2 and @Wrexham AFC happily posted pictures on Twitter thanking coach Ted Lasso.
The Ted Lasso’s biscuits have caught everyone’s attention; baked to win over AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton in the show, have also won the audience. There are numerous recipes for the biscuits online and now Wrexham AFC’s team gets to enjoy the official ones. We hope that the team posts reviews of the biscuits too. The humorous exchange between the two teams was refreshingly entertaining, takes the mind of the other very serious legal challenges Apple faces.
Croeso gents! Like I always say about the films of James Cameron, if you can’t be on time, at least be big. https://t.co/ZXYEN3QPWM
