Yankees: NYY Twitter Account Drops Hilarious Commercial Starring Aaron Judge
New York Yankees star Aaron Judge has been doing a ton of on-camera work this offseason.
Two Aaron Judge commercials in two days?! Where’d this come from? No, no, we’re not complaining. We actually want more. Now.
On Tuesday, Judge’s commercial with Jersey Mike’s, the sub sandwich chain he teased a partnership with earlier in the offseason, dropped and it was everything we had hoped for and more.
Less than 24 hours later, the New York Yankees Twitter account debuted “Judge Saves the Day,” a humorous spot starring the slugging outfielder helping out his coach and teammates. What a guy.
From saving manager Aaron Boone’s snow globe to getting Brett Gardner his morning coffee (sort of), Judge shows off his range and arm, though it’s not anything we aren’t familiar with.
Despite his colossal frame, the former Rookie of the Year covers ground and possesses athleticism many still can’t comprehend.
One funny (and also concerning!) thing to note here is that this seems to have been filmed at the Yankees’ spring training facility in Tampa … which means Judge was doing all of this with a broken rib and a collapsed lung?!
That’s water under the bridge, I guess. Judge is now fully healthy and ready to go for Opening Day on July 23.
We’ve seen him taking plenty of hacks and participating in fielding drills over the last week, so we can assume the filming had no adverse effects on his recovery (whew!). God forbid that epic dive in Boone’s office and that leap at the wall to save Adam Ottavino’s $20 bill didn’t set him back.
Judge is already a star on the field (when he’s healthy and mashing) and now it appears as if his on-camera career is about to take off. Help bring home World Series No. 28 and those opportunities will be even more plentiful, Judgey.
