Alright, I just endured about my 1000th airing of that HORRIBLE new Atlanta Braves spot on Turner South.
Have you had the chance to see it?
Some DJ Ran wannabe (the DJ, not the W poster) spins AND raps about the Braves, while the tomahawk chop chant takes place in the background.
Meanwhile, we get clips of the Braves making their plays... with the occassional thrown in studio clips of the Braves trying to look cool.
By looking cool, I mean dancing or posing.
The spot hits the lowpoint when Chipper Jones, with the world's FAKEST cheesy grin planted on his face, moves his hands in and out. The best way to describe it would be "doing the hokey pokey with finger pistols". I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.
If someone could actually capture those 2-3 seconds of Jones doing that and find a way of getting it to me I'd be appreciative.
I have written Turner South a letter and requested the embarrassing piece be taken off the air. It makes me wish I cheered for a far less embarrassing group, and it makes me reconsider Chipper as my favorite player. It's THAT bad.
Thanks for the heads up. Billy Beane lived here for ever while in the minor leagues, so he is on the local ESPN radio affiliate with the former GM of the team all the time. He always seems like a heck of guy. I'm glad he is doing well.
