If you happen to see a uniquely pink Escalade on the streets, wave hello to Teddy Bridgewater’s mom. She’s the new owner of the custom color Escalade, a color chosen by her son who is a member of the most recent class of NFL draftees.
As a boy, Bridgewater watched his mom, Rose Murphy, work to provide for him and his three siblings. He also stood by her side as she fought against breast cancer and won.
Dreaming of being drafted into the NFL, Bridgewater declared he would give his mom a pink Cadillac Escalade once that day came.
“When I was in third grade, I promised my mom I would get her a pink Cadillac Escalade,” Bridgewater said. “Pink is the color that represents breast cancer awareness, so I just want to get her that big pink Escalade truck and see that big smile on her face.”
Now, years later, that dream has come true. Bridgewater was joined by director Spike Lee in presenting an all-new 2015 Escalade to his mom. True to his word, the Escalade was delivered in a shade of pink Bridgewater chose himself.
Lee documented the momentous occasion in a short film.
We at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac congratulate Bridgewater on making dreams come true, both his mom’s and his own.
