Cubs win the World Series in must-see commercial

Big League Stew

Forget Kate Upton and her finger mechanics. The new baseball video game commercial guaranteed to cause the most shortness of breath and uncontrolled blubbering from yours truly is this offering from Sony's MLB 12: The Show. Do not adjust your monitors, this clip really shows what the streets of Chicago would look like if the Cubs won the World Series.

Does this ad feel like a little bit of a kick in the Old Styles considering it's debuting at the outset of a season where the Cubs will be shooting for a fourth-place finish? Of course it does.

But the fact that it's extremely well done — I loved seeing Sluggers and Wiener's Circle getting some play — more than makes up for it. As does getting an extremely realistic look at the most unrealistic of dreams.

Somebody pass me a tissue?
