(Video) St. Louis Cardinals Rally Squirrel Featured In Latest MLB Playoffs Ad

Like his predecessor before him, the Rally Monkey, the Rally Squirrel has captured the hearts and minds of MLB fans, particularly in St. Louis, where the Cardinals faithful hope to ride the good vibes of the little critter to their second World Series title in the last six years. And you know the little guy has finally arrived when MLB gives him his own postseason commercial. MLB.com’s tagline for the video:

The St. Louis Squirrel is proof that anything can happen in the MLB Postseason

Ain’t that the truth. Even so, if you ask me, the entire concept is a bit on the a-corny side.
