The MLB’s All Star celebration is about a week away, and with that comes the obligatory marketing push. Commercials, print ads, ESPN spots; you name it, advertising-wise, and the MLB is probably using it to get the word out about the baseball party in St. Louis. One such method — the Fox commercial — is being met with some less-than-enthusiastic response, especially from our friends at Major League Jerk. Hef thinks the above commercial is perhaps the Worst Commercial Ever; and while I can see the reason for this sentiment, I’m leaning more towards “this is just silly” side.

I’m not sure, but I think I even like the magnet idea, although, the cheese factor is certainly there. In light of all the steroid crap, do baseball fans still get this excited over an exhibition game with unnecessary meaning tacked on?
