The San Francisco Giants have become known for having a pretty clever marketing team. That, along with their insane personalities in the clubhouse, is a huge part of what made them such an attractive commodity during their World Series run last season. Having already put out one of the funniest commercials we have seen this season, the Giants may have outdone themselves with their latest promotion.
As Off the Bench pointed out, the Giants are currently searching for the World Championship Baby. If you thought they already found it when this kid was spotted in the stands last season, think again. The current contest is calling for the baby who was conceived closest to the Giants World Series-clinching game against the Rangers in October. Parents of children who were born roughly nine months after Game 5 of the World Series — which will be in about a month — can show their child’s birth certificate for a chance to win according to the promotional video on CSNBayArea.com.
At this point it’s unclear what these families actually stand to win aside from being named the person who got busy with their significant other immediately after San Francisco won the title. The point is the promotion is unique, it’s weird, it’s a little perverse, and it has people buzzing. What more could you ask for?
