Top Ten Tuesdays: There's no Way Jeter Drives a Ford
Tuesday, May 13, 2008
Athletes seem to love little more than earning extra dough by endorsing various products. Playing ball is fun and all, but it takes just a couple hours to film a commercial or do a photo shoot holding a jar of peanut butter or jug of a lightning bolt enhanced Gatorade. These days there are few baseball stars that can't land a sweet endorsement deal, and some of them are a tad on the ridiculous side...

Top Ten Baseball Random Player Endorsement Deals

10) Jeter for Skippy "Doubly Delicious" peanut butter. I'd like to see him bust out a jar of PB in the dugout between innings and go to town.

9) Jose Reyes for Wise Snacks. I've only seen these fine products on the east coast (we Californians have to stick with the old standards like Lays and Ruffles (deeeeelish!). I wish I could find a picture of his face gracing the chip bags -- if you can find one for me, you win a prize (and by "prize" I mean "glory of knowing you found a cool pic for YC").

8) Ryan Klesko for Boot Barn. Because he wears a lot of boots. In a barn.

7) Derek Jeter for Ford. There is no way in hell that man drives a Ford. Unless Ford makes Bently's or Ferrari's these days.

6) Tadahito Iguchi for some sort of membership card. I can't figure out what it's a membership for, but I'm pretty sure I see a magic wand in there.

5) Sammy Sosa for Pepsi. A couple notes about this fine commercial: A) I am addicted to saying "Sammy Sosa!" like the taco customer. B) "Special taco" sounds VERY dirty (perhaps simply because I have the mind of a 12 year old boy and anything sexual is funny). C) That icy cold Pepsi really does look delicious... and I'm a Dr Pepper fanatic.

4) Ichiro for Sato Energy Drink. Two words about this commercial: BEAR TRAPS.

3) Jason Giambi for Arm & Hammer’s Ultramax Deodorant. At the end of the commercial, he says that the deodorant is “all the muscle a man needs.” And steroids.

2) Akinori Otsuka for Corky's Pest Control in San Diego. Got ants? No problem - Aki is here to save the day, with one of the catchiest jingles in the TV world today (second only to those delightful Freecreditreport.com gems). I dare you to not sing along.

1) Ichiro for what looks like the Japanese version of Bugles Corn Chips. I can't decide if the best part is the bugles raining down from a corn on the cob or Ichiro's face at the end of the commercial.

    My personal favorite is the Randy Johnson deodorant one where he starts firing 100 mile an hour dodgeballs at guys who are supposed to represent "odor."

    Great post! This is probably as close as you'll get with Reyes http://www.wisesnacks.com/images/sponsorship_jose_images.jpg

    The Luis Tiant Yankees Franks commercials were great..especially since you couldn't understand him.

    I could certainly see Jeter in an Aston Martin, Ford still own a part of them I'm sure.

    I'm not sure if you wanted a picture of the actual bag or a promo with Reyes for wise chips.


    You can actually buy wise chips online off of ebay.

    This is proabably a better one with Reyes.


    D. Pedrioa has an awesome car commericals


    And Papelbon supports global warming
