Kentucky QB Will Levis Wants to Start a New Coffee Trend: Adding Mayo

Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Will Levis puts something white into his morning coffee, but it isn’t milk, cream or sugar.

It’s mayonnaise — and it’s disgusting.

Levis’s morning routine is the worst piece of mayo-related news we’ve heard since Duke’s collaborated on a beer with Champion Brewing, and the accompanying video is the stuff of nightmares.

Unfortunately for the confused young man, this was not the first time he’s mixed mayo and mocha.

The above video was allegedly the first time Levis added the creamy condiment, he told KSR last October. “I was just out to breakfast at Josie’s with my girlfriend on that Friday and I think I just looked over and I was wondering why there was mayonnaise on the table and kind of forgetting that even I put mayonnaise on my egg sandwiches sometimes. She was like, ‘Yeah, maybe some people put it in their coffee,’ like joking. I said, ‘Oh, maybe I should do that.’ I did drink it. I definitely drank it. I can confirm that.”

The day after Levis consumed the mayonnaise-infused coffee, Kentucky broke a 35-year home losing streak to Florida. Apparently crediting the change in his coffee for the win, Levis decided to make his atrocious act more than a one-time thing.

Asked in June about his mayo habit, Levis said he needed to talk to his nutritionist and “find a plan that allows me to have mayo in my diet as frequently as I can” and that “it’s delicious stuff and people should just accept that.”

The people Levis — who led the Wildcats to a 10-3 with a Citrus Bowl victory last year and finished with 24 touchdowns and 2,826 passing yards — should be talking to are executives at Heinz, Hellmann’s, Duke’s and other mayonnaise manufacturers in the hopes of landing himself a lucrative NIL deal during what is projected to be his final year at Kentucky.

Making a play for the 23-year-old could prove to be a smooth move for a mayo maker as he’s projected as a top-five pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and could go as high as No. 1 overall ahead of Ohio State star QB C.J. Stroud and 2021 Heisman-winning signal-caller Bryce Young of Alabama. McDonald’s may also want to sign him up as he’ll be great at pushing product — including Big Macs.

 “I can eat a Big Mac in under 15 seconds. Four bites. It’s been documented, I do have witnesses,” Levis recently said. “It’s one of the performances I’m the proudest about.”

It doesn’t make up for the coffee, but it’s a start.
