Kevin Youkilis and Biz Markie Team Up for Commercial

Biz Markie has done it all. He’s made a hit single. He’s been a featured artist on a song by my favorite childhood band, The Aquabats! He even has a regular segment on Yo Gabba Gabba. Oh, and now he’s dressed as Ben Franklin and played the piano with Kevin Youkilis. That’s basically my entire bucket list.

All in all, it’s an entertaining commercial, though I was surprised that someone more colorful than Youkilis (think Ortiz, Pedroia, Papelbon) wasn’t chosen to be in something so funny.

Which player on the Red Sox do you think is best suited for commercials?

  1. Actually, that’s me, or my homeboy Mozart. Not Ben Franklin. Still rocks though!

  2. Awesome mix there for a commercial. Reminds me of the creative power ESPN puts in to their “This is SportsCenter” line of work. A+
