The Phillies Ruined It All

Dear Santa…

I know we're just a few days away from your big day, but if I could get just one thing for Christmas…it would be the 3:32 back that I spent watching the "What's The Phanatic Say?" video.

What's that you ask?  Well, as it turns out, it's the Philadelphia Phillies hackneyed attempt at creating a spoof(?) video of the viral smash "The Fox" by Ylvis.  You know the one…"cow goes moo, fish goes glub".  The difference being that this one features the Phillie Phanatic and a host of other mascots from in and around The City of Brotherly Love.

The problem is…I hate it.  But, for some reason, this video is getting praise…and I can't figure out why.  If you ask me, I miss the simpler days of, say, "Get Metsmerized!" or, dare I say "Marlins Will Soar".

So, yeah, do what you can.  3:32 isn't that much time, right?

Thanks, man.  See you on the flip florp.
