Default Latest Sox commercial

Just saw the new Sox commercial, which goes "behind the scenes" of a fireworks show to have Southpaw hit a big red button to start the show.

I can't believe how amateurish it is. It looks like it was done by 6th graders, and I'm not exaggerating.

I'm so damn sick of his cheap ass organization. Embarrassing.

While I'm sure it bothers some, the quality of the team's commercials couldn't concern me less.

It's just one more example of the halfassedness of the organization. I'd say they act like a AAA franchise, but it would be an insult to the International League.

Not having seen it, it sounds like the commercial is like the team: full of potential, but unable to execute.

Don't worry. I'm sure Rickett's will show the SOX organization how to correctly explode fireworks after a home run...

Edit - Looks like they removed it. It was probably a bargaining chip...

Nah, the team doesn't have a lot of potential.

All of their commercials look like they were produced by middle school kids.

If you're going to make the commercial and wear the retros, get the details right.

What the hell has happened to Brooks? Off to such a good start *the Cubs vs. Sox ads, Grinder Rules)- and now our ads look like something you'd see for the Beloit Snappers.

I guess we have a different definition of bad, as I thought that campaign was excellent.

LOL, that is awesome because I noticed the same thing about Kittle's jersey. It's not even close. I'm not the only one that is crazy.
