The Giants took a big hit when ace Madison Bumgarner went down for 6-8 weeks after injuring his shoulder and ribs in a dirt biking accident.
An old Bay Area Ford commercial featuring Mad Bum is continuing to pour some additional salt in the wound for Giants fans. The commercial shows the country living Bumgarner doing some intense off-road dirt biking on his day off.
Obviously, the commercial probably had stunt doubles for the dirt biking, but the irony, considering Bumgarner’s injury, is 100% real.
The fact that it’s still running as a continual reminder to torture Giants fans probably isn’t the best marketing plan to increase sales.
