    Definitive Proof That Mascots Hustle Harder Than You Do

    Mascots are people too.

    You may think you work hard for a living, but you don't know the true meaning of hustle until you've spent hours inside a mascot costume trying to make that coin.


    Last week, Twitter user @iPurrple shared a photo highlighting the behind-the-scenes life of mascots and it quickly went viral.

    Wake up hustlers, let’s get this bread. No days off

    The tweet turned into an incredibly wholesome thread of employees sharing their #mascotlife selfies.

    And remember, inside every mascot is a tired human who deserves to making a crap load of money.
