Future HOFer Roberto Alomar Implores You to Catch De Taste

| | Comments (7)


Here's Toronto Blue Jays star second baseman Robbie Alomar gently demanding that we purchase all our fruit punch in the frozen concentrated form. Drew tells me that this commercial was legendary up in Canadia back in the day for Alomar's catchy tag line at the end. Please to enjoy.

This explains that whole misunderstanding from last spring. He had only caught the taste

This campaign makes a lot of sense, Alomar WAS really good at catching things. On and off the field, if scorned ex-wives are to be believed.

To say this commercial is legendary undersells it by a half. There is a team in my hipster softball league called Catch De Taste. When this finally showed up online, it was a holiday among the Blue Jays blogs!

FIRST BALLOT. GET ROBBIE IN!

catch the taste, then spit it on an umpire.

DAMMIT I HAD THE JOKE FIRST BUT TOOK A CALL. LIIIIIAAAAAKOOOOOOOSSSSSS

Mere words can not describe the truly epic feat that is this commercial. mmm... fruit punch punch...

For the record: Annoying Announcer Dude said the word "punch" five times, for an average of 1 "punch" every 6 seconds. In other words, this commercial would make for an extremely boring boxing match.

I was just going to say legendary doesn't cut it.

(my mind is on the Olympics as they are in my city in two months) If someone asked me what are the things that connects all of Canada to the point where I will be excited someone from Regina won a medal in the 2010 Olympics, one of the things I will point to is this commercial.

That speed skater watched this commercial during their childhood, just like I, and demanded their mother go out and get them some damn McCain's!
