Exactly one year ago, I wrote about an MLB 12 The Show commercial, which featured Chicago after the Cubs won the World Series. Of course, it’s only in the video game that they win it all. One of my favorite ads of last year. This time around, MLB 13 The Show has a spot featuring Pittsburgh Pirates star outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who is on the cover of the game. The Pirates are another World Series longshot, seeing as that they’ve had 20 consecutive losing seasons, the longest streak in American professional sports history. But in a game that’s “so real, it’s unreal” anything is possible. Not nearly as interesting as the Cubs commercial, but still pretty amusing.
3/14 update: The Buster Posey commercial is quite funny too. “It’s a video game, moron.” “You’re a video game!”
