A funny little promo.

That's pretty funny. I can't see how they are going to get anything usable out of that shoot, but the outtakes are hilarious.

I think it works as a viral and gets the word out online. They certainly can't use that on TV though.

I've always liked commercials featuring players/coaches. I think they have more personality than the generic game highlights with the voice-over guy reading a couple sports cliches, followed by the catchphrase of the year.

I must have spent way too much time browsing online sales this holiday season, because I instantly recognized Ozzie's sweater (green moose):

Hands down, this is the most insane post ever. How anyone would know that the sweater was from JCPenny is beyond me. You are the WSI superfan of the year.

Seriously, I have to buy this sweater now just so I can wear it at Sox games.

Make it the new black out. Or if that's too ridiculous, just have a section of fans just wearing it.

Put a large snowflake on the sleeve of the jerseys. It can replace the white sock. :D:

I'm down with the sweater idea.

As much as I bitch him out for worshiping the Twins, I have to admit that Ozzie would be a trip to spend a night at a bar with...he does have a charisma that 95% of managers lack.

I loved it. Nearly spit out my drink onto the keyboard when he lifted up his shirt. :rolling:

Didn't you see the bobblehead he had in some of the shots? I didn't say anything about Ozzie bobbleheads being given out.

I was sweater shopping (for something normal) online after Thanksgiving, and was surprised that this was the only really tacky "something crazy Great-Aunt Agnes would get you" one I saw anywhere, and even joked about swapping these with a couple family members. So it was pretty funny for me to see somebody (in a commercial, no less) actually wearing one.

If Terry Francona gets to wear sweatshirts in the dugout, I think Ozzie should wear the sweater. His coaches can be dressed as elves. WSI's most overused phrase will be "Coop'll fix him some milk and cookies." The Sox can sell caps with antlers on them. Peavy's new nickname could be "Jake Frost." New team slogan: A Very White Sox Holiday Season: Merry Christmas to All and All In. Somebody email Brooks!

"Hey, you wanna find me under your tree? Just buy Ozzie's plan. Just 13 games. :wink:"

The subtle wink at the end gets me every time.
