You may or may not recall that shot of someone wiping Jerry Jones' glasses for him during last Wednesday's season-opener against the Giants. NBC caught it and the video went viral.

Turns out that was Jones' son-in-law, and he's now using the strange moment to raise money for the Salvation Army. Now, by going to, you can have your very own Jerry Wipe for just $2.99.

"I wasn't in this to make any money," Jones' son-in-law, Shy Anderson, told on Wednesday. "This has gone crazy and I just cleaned my father-in-law's glasses and it's taken to the water cooler."

Only the Cowboys would find the marketing side of this, but at least it's for charity.
