Larry Bernandez is back, better than ever (video)

Aug 10, 2011, 2:22 AM EDT

OK maybe not, but the Seattle Mariners have brought back Felix Hernandez’s alter-ego in a new commercial promoting – what else? – Larry Bernandez bobblehead night.

The first commercial was amusing enough (if you haven’t seen it, watch here), but Hernandez really shows off his talents in this one, clearly having broadened his acting skills since spring training. He now plays himself and Larry in the same scene, making him practically a poor man’s Martin Lawrence, right? He’s already got a Cy Young award in his trophy case, could an Oscar be far behind?

One thing is for certain: cloning Felix Hernandez might be the best idea the Mariners have ever had. Too bad it’s not that easy.

Check it out. It’s 30 seconds long, it’s amusing and it might even make you laugh. If you don’t at least smile, you probably stole this guy’s sense of humor.

    I so want to like this and think it is funny and good fun and give credit to the organisation for having fun and engaging with the fans.

    But its the Mariners, I can’t get past the fact the 2nd/ third most talented/ popular player on the team is fictional.

    I hadn’t seen the commercials with Cliff Lee! :)

    I’ve been searching the web… The Mariners seem to have most of the fun commercials! If only fun commercials = winning team, the Mariners would be on to something here…

    Mariners have had great commercials for 10 years at least. Ichiro’s early work was very amusing.

    But I think Larry Bernandez and clone Ichiro (the guy who interfered with a ball still in play the other night) should be in commercials together. The possibilities are endless.
