That’s what happened for Nicholas Walker, 21, a Nebraska man whose love for mayonnaise earned him $10,000.
Walker, of Bellevue, threw his hat in the ring to compete against other mayonnaise-lovers across the nation in Kraft’s “Mayodorsement” contest.
To try to win, participants had to “follow @RealKraftMayo and post a video about your mayo love (or a sonnet, or a song, or a recipe – you get it) on Instagram or Twitter using #KraftMayodorsement #Contest,” Kraft explained of its "Mayodorsement" contest.
Kraft narrowed down eight finalists, and it turns out, Walker stood out among many. Voters deemed “Dripping With the Mayo” the ultimate winner.
Now, the mayo-inspired rap is available for streaming, the World-Herald notes.
Billboards, including in Bellevue, display a huge image of Walker holding a jar of Mayo. They read: “Hundreds entered. But one person’s mayo love rose to the top. Welcome to the KRAFT Mayo family.”
