An appearance on the FX hit show “Atlanta” has given former NFL superstar Michael Vick to a new way of earning some money.
Vick briefly appeared on the third episode of the season and was seen racing random people at a strip club in the parking lot. Donald Glover’s character Deserve to be challenged Vick to a race and lost by a ceiling.
The former Atlanta Falcons star told Bleacher Report on Thursday that his cameo appearance has led to a whole range of challenges on parking lots of different clubs.
“After seeing that, I have a lot of requests to come out and race guys outside the club,” he said. “Whether it’s a strip club or a regular club, I would that my side hustle, man. Maybe two weekends of the month, I’ll go ahead and make me some money.”
Vick told Bleacher Report that he is in first instance not on the show, but he changed his mind when he found out was Glover’s show.
“Sometimes for people, if you have something new to do or going to different places and experiencing different things, if it’s outside of your normal routine, you don’t want to step out,” he said. “But that was where I found out it was Donald Glover, and it was one of the most popular shows on TV. I’m like, ‘It’s Atlanta. I have to do it.’ So I did it.”
“Whether it’s a strip club or a regular club, I would that my side hustle, man.”
