Video: Giants Confessional Booth Commerical is Pretty Funny
This just in: the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants are a bunch of nut jobs. They like to party. Tim Lincecum loves having fans who smoke weed and probably puffs on a little herb himself before heading to In-N-Out Burger. Brian Wilson is clinically insane and Pat Burrell dresses up in freakish sexual attire to enable him. Oh, and let’s not forget about Aubrey Huff’s lucky red thong. The boys from the Bay are as entertaining as they come (which is why their Showtime reality show should be phenomenal) and that’s what makes their latest commercial so hilarious. Check out the Giants confessional booth commercial, courtesy of Big League Stew:
I have no doubt in my mind the Giants will get a lot of crap from some religious groups for the ad, but whoever thought of it is a genius. Like the infamous “Idiots” from the 2004 champion Red Sox, the Giants’ wacky ways appeal to their fan base and even casual fans who are not seriously committed to any particular team. Embracing their ways makes perfect sense from a marketing perspective, which is why I’m giving this commercial a solid A.
