Bernie Carbo For Casey Chevrolet - 1986

| | Comments (6)

YouTube user Adpocalypse describes the following Classic TV Friday video thusly: "An ad from 1987 or 1988 about the 1975 world series, on youtube in 2008.. I was told there wouldn't be any math." That's pretty accurate but I think the commercial is from 1986 due to the mention of 1987 Chevys in stock.

In any case, it's not the year that makes this video special, it's Bernie Carbo turning in what is quite possibly the single worst acting performance I've ever seen from an athlete. Time has kind of obscured Carbo's home run in favor of the hammier and more picturesque Fisk Home Run from that same game. But trust me, once you watch this commercial you'll never overlook Ol' Bernie again. Please to enjoy.

I have it on good authority that Bernie Carbo loved it when Chicopee indeed.

I think he practiced his lines once, while eating a steak tip sandwich.

Bernie is definitely not a complex Carbo.

CASEY fans are such obnoxious assholes.

Mr. Pedroia would contend that while awful, this wasn't even the worst acting performance by a Red Sox player.
