Retro Blue Jays – Labatt Makes Fans Sing and Dance

December 11, 2014

There was once a time when you couldn’t think about the BLUE Jays without connecting them to Labatt’s BLUE. The two were inseparable, mainly because Labatt owned a portion of the team for many years.

This brings us to this gem from 1990. Some marketeer decided to ask fans who their favourite players were and as an added bonus, got some of these fans to sing and dance. The end result was a delightful display of amateur hour.

This clip is more than a beer and baseball advertisement. It’s a time capsule of late-80s/early-90s fashion and it’s freaking hilarious! Look at the hair! Look at the clothes! Look at the facial hair!

I do realize some blogger – 20 years from now –  will likely look at videos and photos of me and my fellow Blue Jay fans from this decade and laugh at our hair, clothes and facial hair. That’s the rationale I’m using, so I don’t feel guilty about laughing at the fans in this 24-year-old commercial.

Circle of life, I guess.
