San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson is one of the game’s most colorful personalities. You could be one of those people who believes baseball is boring, but I’m guessing you don’t think Wilson is boring. How could anyone think so?
Wilson’s quirkiness and star power landed him a gig as Taco Bell pitchman. It’s a funny commercial (watch it here after the jump)
Houston Astros pitcher Bud Norris isn’t a fan of the ad, or what Wilson is doing in it though.
On Monday Norris (@budnorris20) Tweeted:
“Does Brian Wilson play baseball or work in Hollywood? I can’t tell but his Taco Bell commercials are a joke.
This sounds like “hey, don’t player hate, player participate, doesn’t it?” Why hate on the man for profiting dollars based on his excessive q rating.
In this commercial, B-Weezy goes all Black Ops to come up with a solution to finishing a Taco Bell XXL Chalupa.
Around 1:30 pm CT Tuesday Norris Tweeted that his issues aren’t with Wilson himself, just his commercials. Norris told his 5,100+ followers:
“Lol to everybody. Don’t have anything against Wilson but just didn’t like his commercials. Later. Lol”
Further prove that he’s not a player hater, Norris retweeted this from his teammate, catcher Brian Esposito:
He’s appeared on live radio all across the world from Houston to New Zealand. The President of the United States follows him on Twitter (@Paul_M_BanksTSB) You should too.
