That is pretty large animal to cast in a commercial like this. W.C. Fields doesn’t know what he’s missing (mostly because he’s long dead.) Seeing a buffalo (or is it a bison) on Getting Blanked means only one thing: today is Seattle Mariners commercial day also known as the best day of the Hardball Talkin’ year!

The first post-Ichiro Mariners commercial day does not disappoint, largely because King Felix aka Larry Bernandez is just SO DAMN LIKEABLE*.

Hiring a professional actor does not seem in keeping with the spirit of Mariners commercials but this one works for me.
