AT&T has debuted a new national television advertisement this week for their 3G Network that features the Mets AAA affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons. The 30-second spot is already airing nationwide.
The new commercial is about a fictional player named Carl Schaus who has just been promoted to the Buffalo Bisons and is trying to race to the ballpark in time for his first road game.
Schaus uses his AT&T phone to get faster directions for his taxi driver and then shows up to Coca Cola Field in time to find out he’s leading off for the Bisons. Schaus then puts on a batting helmet and receives cheers from the crowd as he heads to the batter’s box.
The Bisons can use all the help they can get, fictional or otherwise after a dreary season in 2009. Things may be looking up for them though, especially with Josh Thole and maybe even Ike Davis bolstering their roster. I wonder what is to become of our former first baseman of the future Nick Evans?
