Jimmy Butler signs ad deal with Mountain Dew


After appearing prominently in ads last year for the Illinois Lottery and BMO Harris Bank, the Chicago Bulls forward has signed a deal with soft drink Mountain Dew to become its new "brand ambassador" in Chicago. The 25-year-old will appear in billboard and print ads around the city for the brand, owned by Purchase, N.Y.-based PepsiCo, starting next month and will make personal appearances at Mountain Dew-sponsored events.
