Seattle Mariners Unveil 2015 Commercials

5 of 6

“Intensely Intense”

It was only a matter of time until King Felix made his appearance in the Mariners’ new set of commercials. The wait was definitely worth it! Hernandez’s trademark intensity is almost as well known as his ability to pitch.

For me, the laugh comes from the picture with the mime in the park. I’m not sure why I find it humorous, but I do. The mime being involved seems just random enough to be funny.

Let’s be honest, the idea of Mike Zunino leading a group selfie on the field is slightly disconcerting. However, at least it shows he is close to his pitchers.

Felix’s personality catches many people off guard. People see the tilted cap and baggy uniform, and assume that he is arrogant. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hernandez is confident in himself and his teammates, and he plays the game with enthusiasm. This commercial is yet another example of his ability to laugh at himself.

Hopefully, there will be plenty of opportunities to see King Felix get fired up about a great pitch or play in 2015.
