Good news for those of you who were concerned the New York Yankees would release a cheesy cologne brand without also releasing a cheesy cologne commercial! This ad for the New York Yankees fragrance feature closer Mariano Rivera in black and white as he pitches in slow-motion on a snow-covered diamond. The entire thing has a very 1992 Guess feel to it and I was hoping the camera would turn around to reveal Claudia Schiffer serving as a sexy catcher or umpire, but no dice.  

According to the product's website, New York Yankees fragrance "epitomizes the winning style of the greatest team in baseball, capturing a sporty and confident attitude."

No doubt it does all that epitomizing with undertones of pine tar, Red Man and Bleacher Creature b.o., as well. A limited bottle of the stuff with Rivera's screened signature will set you back $85, but a value set for $54 makes for a more affordable stocking stuffer.
