Seattle Mariners Campaign Pays Humorous Homage to the Game

It's really sad that America's supposed favorite pass time has to advertise to get Americans to do what is supposed to be their favorite thing, but that's what it's come down to and this campaign for the Seattle Mariners is the latest entrant. The campaign consists of six spots (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) which run the gamut from quirky to funny. They're filled with both general baseball themes as well as local Mariners themes such as the weird ritual Mariners right fielder Ichiro Suzuki goes through at the plate before each pitch. Another spot speaks to the semi-recent "talk to the glove" behavior players practice when in conference. All in all, the campaign does a nice job tying together baseball-isms and adding some amusement to the sport.

What's sad is America doesn't even dominate any longer in its favorite pass time as Seattle's Ichiro also plays for Japan -the real baseball world champion.

Those are pretty lame...they are verging on entertaining, but they don't say anything...what a waste.

Oh, come on, they're not bad for a franchise.

Funnier if you live here.
