This commercial’s actually pretty cool. Better than another 26-year-old Red Sox starter’s, at any rate.
Last Matsuzaka-related post for a while. I promise.
Here’s an advertising 101 question:
In 20 years, which commercial will you remember?
Let’s just say that I still have Herb Abrams and “Silver Lake Dodge” stuck in my head, from the days of Bruins and Sox broadcasting youth. The person who dreamt up that Papelbon ad is a genius. The one who did Dice-K is just a slickster with knowledge of an AVID machine.
How very Boomeresque. Is beer the secret ingredient of the Gyroball?
I absolutely love how they lead you to think that he crushed all 16 ounces in one chug.
I want to be like DM when I grow up. And drink that beer. Or something.
Best part of the Daisuke commercial though is definitely the end, where the rock song cuts off with *ding*.
He may be a great pitcher (we’ll see), but that young, roly poly face don’t scare me.
Greg Maddux was a dead ringer for Bill Romanowski when he first came up, if I remember correctly. You just knew when he came onto the scene that he was going to dominate. Same with Koufax. And Glavine. And K-Rod looks just mean. And Pedro, now he had that youthful look that just screamed “K machine”.
If he can put away a pint in one gulp, I’ll admit that I’m intimidated.
Separated at birth????
Uhh…they don’t really look anything alike…
They should sell that beer at Fenway….I’ll buy one. But only one, I can’t afford two.
Try another looksie with your glasses on =)
You could put a second cup on layaway.
… they look JUST like twins after a couple Asahi…
How friggin big is the guy in the commercial with Papelbon? I mean, I’ve met him and know he’s a pretty decent sized guy, but that car salesman clearly dwarfs him. That guy is a monster.
Looks like a Pokemon commercial.
