Seattle Mariners Unveil 2017 TV Commercials
With every bit as much or more anticipation of finding out who makes their 25-man roster coming out of Spring Training, this Seattle Mariners fan can hardly wait for the club's annual roll out of new TV commercials.
The wait this year is over.
Back in 1997, the Mariners became Major Legaue Baseball's bar-setters for promotional spots. Twenty years later, they are still the best. The ads are so good, in fact, that just the other night my son and I watched a DVD produced by ROOT Sports that went through many of them over the last two decades. My boy, now 12, has learned about many Mariners greats via these commercials as they typically exaggerate qualities about star players. This year is no different.
I got the biggest kick out of the "Happy Felix Day" spot. Not only is Hernandez the most recognizable of all players by Seattle fans, but the most beloved. The "punchline", delivered by Catcher Mike Zunino, made me laugh out loud.
Which did you think was the best?
