Bryce Harper has a new commercial for the new Marucci Black bat, and clearly he was cast to do what he does best – look intense and hit baseballs.
The campaign, which also has a separate ad featuring Albert Pujols, comes with a competitive slogan to go with it.
“A message from our Big Leaguers … our bat is better than yours.”
Never mind that those big leaguers aren’t normally allowed to use metal bats. Look at that warrior eye black! Check out that intimidating faux hawk! Listen to that ping! Raaawr!
Meanwhile, Harper went 3 for 27 in his first week in the Arizona Fall League.
Stupid wooden bats.
