I’m trying to come up with a list of TV commercials that have foul balls in them. Can you help me think of some?
There’s the Rolling Rock commercial in which a ball hits a bunch of people in the groin.
There’s the Coors Light commercial in which a ball nails some guy in the head.
There’s the Flomax commercial (can’t find the video) where a guy catches a ball.
There’s even a Kool-Aid commercial where Kool-Aid himself catches a home run.
There’s also a commercial that was on TV earlier this year — I forget what was actually being advertised — where a foul ball gets suspended in mid-air, and some guy reaches up through a frozen sea of outstretched hands and grabs it. Does anyone remember that? Oh…and I vaguely remember another commercial from a few years ago…it was for a sandwich place…Subway or Quiznos or something like that…where a home run ball landed in the seats, and some guy dropped his sandwich while trying to grab it, but instead of going for the ball, all the fans tried to snag the sandwich. Cute idea, but once again, I can’t remember exactly who or what was being advertised. Help me out, please! And let me know if you can think of any other ballhawking-themed commercials.
