Did you like those Mariners commercials? Then you’ll hate this Mets commercial!

Mar 17, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is a definite difference in professionalism between those Seattle Mariners commercials we linked yesterday and this Mets commercial to which reader Jovian Jamian alerted me this morning. Although with his innocent amateurism, Jose Reyes‘ specific segment is probably more warm and endearing than anything on any of the Mariners’ videos.

 

And Jovian did one better. Move over Mr. Met, Meet Mr. Calcaterra:

 

Let’s Go Mets!

    Looks like somebody nabbed that ol’ mid-70’s Phillies marketing crew

    I very close to calling the authorities to charge Craig with a hate crime

    Holy crapsticks.

    I guess we know why they didn’t land any big free agents this winter, all that money clearly got funneled into the marketing budget.

    I can’t get season tickets fast enough!!

    Uh…was this a meant to be funny or in any way endearing? Think I’ll go watch the ‘Craig luvs Frenchie’ thing to get rid of the memory ….

      NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Don’t do it seisenta y ocho!!!! Watch Tiffany instead, though you will also be subjested to Vlad the Undead, too.

        Oh, yeah, Tiffany in her jammies…heh, heh, heh, and Vlad; his head was so shiny…or something

        He shines his dome to boost the sheen and glare factor to give him a chance against Mookie and her ray gun.

    Well that was absolutely terrible, but Josh Thole looks and sounds like Joseph Bereta of Barats and Bereta at 1:04, so there’s that.

    Sigh… at least at one point the Mets at least made good (if not great) commercials.

    Between this and that season ticket commercial they shot a couple months ago, I’m convinced the Mets need a new advertising agency.

    I’m also convinced that they refuse to do 30 second commercials.

    Dear God…that was definitely Cleo (Clio?) worthy.

    That’s phenomenal. My brother is a Bosox fan, I’ll have to get a Mets card for him just to annoy him.

    Those letters Beltran is holding look suspiciously like pink slips. I guess Mr.Met has been remiss in duties by not handing them out.

    What…..No Oliver Perez in this team/fan love fest. And Sandy Alderson wonders why the fans spend their energy focusing on the negative. This promo video does not bode well for Castillo as well.
