‘MLB 12: The Show’ commercial shows Cubs winning World Series (Video)
Only Cubs fans truly know how this commercial makes Cubs fan feel. Correct me if I’m wrong, but my best guess is it brings out extremely mixed emotions. On one hand, the creators of the ad did a tremendous job of making it seem authentic. You really get the impression that this is what the streets of Chicago would look like if the Cubs broke their 104-year World Series drought. That being said, it’s not real. Does that mean it simply adds to the pain?
Whatever the case, the folks at MLB 12: The Show did a fantastic job with the commercial in my opinion. That’s about as authentic as it gets. I almost cried when that old guy cut his beard off. Anytime you can make people laugh and cry in a one-minute span, you’ve done something right.
Fist pound to Big League Stew for passing the video along
