Adidas Is Offering an Island to Any NFL Combine Participant Who Breaks the 40-Yard Dash Record (Tweet)
Chris Johnson set the record in the NFL combine’s 40-yard dash by getting from here to there in just 4.24 seconds. It’s an impressive record but one that Adidas wants to see shattered. The apparel company is offering anyone who can break the record…
…an entire island.
Sounds crazy right? I mean, wouldn’t cash work better for an unproven NFL prospect?
Probably, but that doesn’t get headlines the way an ISLAND does.

Here’s the fine print:
Further, Athlete is only eligible to win the One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) in connection with the NFL Scouting Combine one (1) Island (e.g., Athlete cannot break the Official Record in his first attempt and earn the One Million Dollars ($1,000,000), then break the record again in his second attempt and earn a second Island.
So, if you’re super clever…you’re out of luck. But just imagine how fast you can sprint all day long ON YOUR OWN ISLAND.
