Washington Commanders star Brian Robinson‘s big hat resulted in some BIG sales for the company behind the massive lid … ’cause TMZ Sports is told their business saw a whopping 2,000% increase in orders!!
Robinson’s hat quickly went viral after Sunday’s 19-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons … and the running back hilariously told reporters — “If you want a big hat, let me know.”
Noggin Boss — the company that sells big hats starting at $75 — tells us the impact was immediate … with Monday being one of the biggest days in the brand’s history.
As it turns out, NB says a bunch of major television networks hit them up to get Noggins for their on-air talent following Robinson’s appearance … but ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt was one of the lucky ones who got one “years ago” — and he wore it on “SportsCenter” Monday night!!
If the look seems familiar, Noggin Boss co-founders Gabe Cooper and Sean Starner appeared on “Shark Tank” earlier this year. The guys were seeking $50k for 25% of the company … and ended up sealing the deal with Daymond John for 30%!!
Robinson’s hat — customized with the Commanders’ logo — was a gift from a family friend … and the dude almost certainly started a trend in the sports world, with teams even photoshopping big hats onto their players.
NB tells us there’s no official partnership with Brian … but there are some “pretty huge” endorsement deals in the works.
