New York Mets' "Whittler"
The Mets' mascot is sitting in a dugout whittling a giraffe out of wood. Seeming pleased with himself he stands it up next to a menagerie of wood figures he has also whittled. He then takes a bat and begins sanding it. The commercial ends with the screen going to black with the words "The excitement returns to Shea Stadium this Tuesday. And not a moment too soon. Mets vs. Nationals."
