Rolling Rock Commercial (2007)
- - Get the App: Rolling Rock
Plot / Description
"Rolling Rock: Ricochet"
This banned Super Bowl ad starts at a baseball game. The batter hits a foul ball that bounces off a pole, and then keeps on bouncing, hitting everyone in the crotch. It ricochets like this for several minutes until the entire stadium evacuates to save themselves - except for two guys in the stands wearing cups.
A runner at first and nobody out. Henderson the batter, Harmond on the mound. A left-hander come set. A pitch on the way. Henderson swings and lines one foul. Ricochets back and it gets Harmond. What's going on? Everybody's going down. Now the fans. I've never seen anything like this. There goes my popcorn. No! Not Phil. The catcher still can't find the ball. What is going on? The ball is like a magnet. Nobody's safe. Everybody's running.
Rolling Rock Extra Pale
This ad has been deemed inappropriate for TV due to 33 men being struck in the groin by a magic baseball.
Remember your cup.
