To Hell With Brian Wilson’s Beard, Let’s Play Ball

We are just three days away from the opening pitch of the 2011 Major League Baseball season. Ergo, it’s a good time to view some baseball commercials. Here’s one from Swirl in San Francisco.

Here’s another Giants-related spot for a video game.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
