As the cover boy for MLB 2K12 the Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander will be splashed across televisions all over the country, and will become the center of attention whenever he appears on the screen. Well, he won't be the center of attention in this ad, and it doesn't appear he wants to be.
In the latest MLB 2K12 commercial Verlander sits in a trailer with Jay Bruce, C.J. Wilson and David Price as they are being taught how to properly pitch in the game by super model and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covergirl Kate Upton. She starts by giving a verbal lecture and giving hand gestures before leaning over Price's shoulder to give a "hands on" approach.
Naturally, Price appears overjoyed by her teaching method and seems to care very little about learning how to pitch with Upton leaning over him. After instructing Price, Upton asks the other ball players who else needs help to which all three practically dislocate their shoulders raising their hands.
The commercial again is comedy gold and shows a side of MLB stars that most fans don't get to see. And while Verlander is riding a cheetah and getting tips from super models Tigers fans can rest assured that all of this attention will not go to his head. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
