SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU Cougars and current Cleveland Browns linebacker Sione Takitaki found the brand partnership to go perfectly with his last name.

Sione Takitaki partners with Takis brand

In 2018, and half a year before Takitaki entered the NFL, DJ Snake released the song “Taki Taki.” After no official partnership materialized with the linebacker, I felt that an opportunity had been missed.

More than five years later, some of that has been rectified thanks to Takis and their famous rolled tortilla chips.

In a series of social media posts, Takitaki and his wife, Alyssa, announced a partnership with the snack brand.

After all, Takis chips make sense as the perfect snack for the Takitakis.

“The Takitakis’ Takis,” the NFL linebacker shared on Instagram.

“The OG game day snack,” Takitaki added in another post. “Only the best for my favorite girl.”
