MLB on FOX – “Traditions” – Monkey

Baseball is home to some of sports’ most sacred traditions. Some would see these institutions and respectfully leave them be, and some would not. Guess which route we went? So, armed with a maniacal monkey, a brand new Auto-Tuner 5000, and some nine-inch nails, we got busy and convinced Joe Buck and Tim McCarver to take a walk on the ridiculous side. “Joe and Tim really embraced the idea of having some fun and tweaking people’s expectations of there on-camera personas,” said Fox Sports Marketing SVP, Robert Gottlieb.

Thanks to the great group at HSI and director Ryan Ebner, and a big thanks to the crazed, feral monkey for not ripping off anyone’s face during the shooting.
