You know how every moment of a Major League Baseball network broadcast seems to be corporately sponsored?
Well, the comedy troupe 12 Angry Mascots is lampooning that perception. You might remember 12 A.M. from its video about the dangers of baseball failing to spay and neuter its free agents.
This inFAUXmercial (if you will) is even better; It has actors, including a voice-over guy:
"For years, you had to be a major corporation to advertise with Major League Baseball. But now, for a limited time only, MLB is opening its in-game sponsorship to you — the fan."
One "testimonial" says:
"My boyfriend loves complaining about the announcers during the World Series. So this year, whenever Tim McCarver mispronounces an Hispanic player's name, or Joe Buck comes across as a condescending [person], it'll be courtesy of Danny, here."
Jonathan SAN-chez. Jonathan San-CHEZ.
That's a cheap shot at the Royals, no matter how realistic.
