Baseball season is almost here, and shocker, the World Champion Chicago Cubs are hoping to repeat their success for another season.
Last year, Cubs teammates and off-the-field best friends Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo made a commercial touting the “Bryzzo Souvenir Company,” a promotional ad for the 2016 MLB season. (The cute nickname comes from Rizzo + Bryant.) They sold home-run baseballs and authenticated them with their bats.
Following the very good 2016 season, the duo are back with a commercial for the 2017 season, this time enlisting the help of one massive Cubs fan: Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.
“Kiss it goodbye, this one’s been Bryzzo’d,” Vedder sings in a new jingle for the souvenir company.
They also brought on board teammates Addison Russell, Javier Baez, Kyle Schwarber, Ben Zobrist, and their “intern,” retired catcher David Ross, who’s now getting his kicks as a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
The Cubs play on Opening Day against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday April 2 on ESPN. Watch the video below via MLB’s Facebook page.
