Flashback Friday: Roy Halladay’s Beehive Commercial
Over the past few years, the Blue Jays have put together some pretty memorable television commercials. For me, none were as memorable as the crop of spots put out in 2008.
For this week’s Flashback Friday, we take a look at Roy Halladay’s “beehive” commercial from the Blue Jays advertising campaign.
After watching a bunch of hapless hooligans attempt to knock down a beehive with rocks, Roy Halladay walks up out of nowhere and throws a stone as precisely as his cut fastball to bring the beehive down.
Halladay’s robotic preciseness plays well into this commercial, and I think my favourite part is Doc celebrating with a subdued fist pump and walking away from the situation as the kids fight off swarms of bees.
For someone whose moniker is “Doc”, you’d think he might have been a little more concerned for those children’s health. Oh, who am I kidding … those punks probably had it coming, anyway.
