Last year's Blue Jays commercials represented a bit of a change from previous seasons' commercials, in that there was a definite focus on the fans. Check out this one and see for yourself:
That's all well and good, but there's something to be said for featuring the players who you are going out to see play ball when you purchase a ticket.
Let's look back at some comedic commercials from the mid- to late-2000s which had a larger player focus.
Scott Rolen's Drive-Through Encounter
Lyle Overbay Ruins a Wedding
Aaron Hill Is Good at Things
Skip to 4:19 for the ad.
Roy Halladay Is a Dick
Roy Halladay Is Not A Dick
Frank Thomas Pillow Fight
This is my personal favourite, although I can't seem to embed it, so here is the link. Hilariously enough there was a bit of controversy surrounding the ad and it was forced to be edited to include a disclaimer against trying this at home. Pillow fighting. Don't do it at home.
Finally, here are three slightly older commercials (I believe?), none of which have dialogue and are pretty darn funny in their own way.
This has been a mailed-in post, which is what I do best. I hope you enjoyed. Have a safe and happy New Year everyone!
