Irish Spring jokingly responds to Georgia's dig at Notre Dame
Sept. 20, 2019
Irish Spring is sending a shipment of its products to the University of Georgia in response to a local grocery store jokingly announcing it was out of stock ahead of the Bulldogs' top-10 showdown Saturday vs. Notre Dame.
Dill's Food City posted to social media earlier this week a sign that noted its Irish Spring soap was "temporarily out of stock" before adding, "go 'Dawgs."
Now the soap company is playing along with the grocery store's viral trolling. The official Twitter account of Irish Spring posted a photo with boxes of its products with Bulldogs stickers on them.
The account tweeted : "Hey @universityofga - Heard you were out of stock in Athens, GA. We're sending a little luck your way. Hoping for a good, clean game tomorrow! #NDvsUGA."
The tweet has already engaged a plethora of Georgia and Notre Dame fans, and the university of Georgia responded by retweeting Irish Spring's post and captioning, "#CommitTo beating Notre Dame! #NDvsUGA."
To continue the running joke, Irish Spring is also considering handing out soap to tailgaters in Athens, Ga., ahead of Saturday's 8 p.m. ET kickoff between the No. 3-ranked Bulldogs and seventh-ranked Fighting Irish.
