Failla also discussed his new deal by saying, "I am very pleased to associate myself with Bubble Protection. I understand and believe them when they state that Bubble Protection is a sustainable business model, while simultaneously being positive EV for their users." The New Yorker also said, "I am a true supporter of the technology and I anxiously await the time when I can use Bubble Protection in the United States. Until that time I will proudly endorse the product in my travels both here and abroad."
