The whispers started down the stairwell. A megawatt smile and python arms had entered NutraClick's Sioux Falls customer care facility.
"My buddy is like Vernon is right here, and I'm like no. I standup and boom Vernon Davis comes right to me," said employee Mason Knutson.
The 49ers standout tight end had touched down in a foreign land.
"South Dakota! First time here. I know that you're really nice," said Vernon Davis.
The NutraClick employees couldn't get enough of number 85. Social media was a flutter, compliments were constant, and attending-grabbing tendencies were at an all-time high.
Davis endorses NutraClick's Force Factor supplements.
"I've been using Force Factor for three years. I'm big on supplements and taking care of my body," said Davis.
This week, NutraClick is appreciating its employees. The facility's manager thought brining in Davis would be the best gift.
"Oh my God! I can't believe it, I didn't think I'd actually be able to meet the guy. This is the greatest day ever," said one employee.
Added Donny Guest, "I thought it was amazing. He's been one of my favorite athletes my whole life. It's cool we work for a company and are able to come to work and see him here."
With his mighty muscles, Davis lifted these employees spirits.
"With a big smile on my face. I'm 30 years old. I feel like a kid again," said Guest.
It's a day that will live on in their memories, their phones, and on this fathead forever.
