Chuck E. Cheese's announced today that it has agreed to a 5-year sponsorship package with Sean Sutton, Head Coach Designate of the Oklahoma State University men's basketball team.
As part of the agreement, Coach Sutton will serve as the voice of the animatronic Chuck E. Cheese character in all Midwest restaurant locations, replacing long time voice actor Duncan Brannan. He will also dress up as the famous mouse for special occasions in the Stillwater area, including Orange Peel, Boone Pickens grandson's birthday party, and NCAA wrestling championship celebrations.
"Ever since I was child, I dreamed of one day being a rodent. I dreamed it so much that I even mimicked their look, feel and voice. Now I get to live my lifelong dream," a humbled, raspy voiced Sutton said. "Plus I get all the cheeeese pizza I want. And I mean free pizza, too."
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Chuck E. Cheese's operates over 500 "family fun" restaurant locations throughout the United States and other nations.
