Though the Twins' offense has struggled to generate many runs in the month of June, their tremendous success in May and the method of their outburst against the White Sox yesterday reminds us all of what has worked for the team all year: Hit Clusters.
Now, the Twins, along with local business partners in the breakfast cereal industry are out to share the secret of their winning ways with the populace at large in this new advertisement for a special Twins Centric Cereal!
[Our first shot is of Twins clubhouse where a dejected looking Kennys Vargas and Byron Buxton sit at the team breakfast table]
Kennys: It isn't easy to be a big leaguer...
Byron: Yeah, and you'd think they'd be able to afford something better than simple toast for us too...
[Brian Dozier enters, with a big smile and, if possible, animated unicorns and ninjas]
Brian: Are you guys tired of your boring breakfasts and wishing you could score more runs?!?
Kennys: That is literally what we were just saying.
Brian: Try HIT CLUSTER CEREAL! A joint venture of the Minnesota Twins, General Mills, and Malt o Meal! The official Cluster-Based Cereal of the Minnesota Twins!!
Byron: Do we have an Official Non-Cluster-Based Cereal?
Brian: Don't change the subject Rookie!! HIT CLUSTER CEREAL contains all the valuable nutrients you need to connect hits together for a big inning!!
[A series of other smiling Twins players appear with the cereal]
Torii Hunter: It's got Single Almonds!
Trevor Plouffe: It's got Double Granola Granules!!
Eddie Rosario: It's got Triple Fiber Flakes!!!
Brian Dozier: Not to mention Home Run Flavor!!!!
Joe Mauer: Sometimes, when I really want to cut loose, I even have some with vitamin rich Milk.
Torii: For the last time Joe, don't flaunt your decadent party life style in front of the kids!
Brian: C'mon Guys! Try a bite!!
Kennys: Wow! That taste sure comes through in the clutch!
[All the Twins Laugh heartily before the final Voice Over]
VOICE OVER: Hit Cluster Cereal is available for a limited time only, and is part of a balanced breakfast with other great Official Minnesota Twins foodstuffs like "Base on Balls Bread" and "Orange (You Glad We're Facing White Sox Pitchers) Juice"
