New Twins Ad Features Joe Mauer In Bubble Wrap

The Minnesota Twins are leaving the Metrodome and relocating to the brand-new state-of-the-art Target Field. To remind fans of this fact, the Twins have put together a TV commercial showing movers at the new digs delivering the goods - such as boxes, championship trophies, and Joe Mauer encased in bubble wrap.

The spot also features Michael Cuddyer & Denard Span sitting in a box full of packing peanuts, and the statuesque Joe Nathan carried like a, um, statue. There’s even a misdelivered White Sox fan, at whom the head mover scoffs, “Doesn’t belong here!“, before being rudely & violently thrown back into the truck.

Clever. I especially like the name on the moving truck: Mover-Sota. Some St. Paul-based shipping business really needs to use this moniker.
