We Just Hope This Isn’t The Closest The Cubs Ever Get To Winning The World Series
Our first reaction to the promo below for MLB 12 The Show was that it was twisting the knife for Cubs fans who've never known the joy of their team winning it all - especially the way it brings you back to reality at the end. Cruel, cruel reality. And we weren't alone in thinking so - but we're a little closer to alone than we thought. Big League Stew's Kevin Kaduk said the ad's quality "more than makes up for" its unreality in his Cubs fan mind, while the video's Youtube page is littered with comments from fans of both the Cubs and other teams saying the video either gave them goosebumps or actually caused them to shed tears.
And the World Series celebration stuff is fantastic. We've watched enough "fans going nuts in bars" videos, for example, to say that hypothetical was pretty much right on the money. Indeed, it's hard not to watch the entire ad without cracking a smile. But when you remember none of it actually happened... let's just say we're still not sure whether the guy in the commercial playing the game was tearing up with joy or sadness.
