_[Editor’s Note: For context, this was part of our impromptu “Animated GIF Week“]_ The first of today’s new GIFs features Jarrell, slicking his Jheri Curl back while the camera dramatically zooms back to show the Arch.

Fun Things You Can Do With the Weird Ray Vinson Super Bowl Commercial

_[Editor’s Note: For context, this was part of our impromptu “Animated GIF Week“]_ Did you happen to catch the weird Ray Vison commercial aired during the Super Bowl last night? Even from the squeaky voiced man that has made former Cardinal skipper Tony LaRussa do some odd things for cash, this was quite a doozy (See the whole video here)! At the very least, it managed to confuse St. Louis Super Bowl watchers, while others considered it an “insult” We at Punching Kitty Headquarters thought of it a little differently. [Read More]

KSDK Sports 2012 Looks Like the Worst Game Ever

Five random thoughts after watching one of the weirdest local news commercial St. Louis has seen (and it’s seen some insanely weird ones): 1. Are my only choices for my lineup Katie Felts, Rene Knott, and Frank Cusumano? We’d love a “Create-an-Anchor-That-Can-Pronounce-Names-Correctly” Feature! Eh who are we kidding, we’d take all the fun out of the game by maxing all the attributes to 100, making a over-sized linebacker of a sports reporter who will just run over people…just like KMOV did.

Tony LaRussa and Ray Vinson’s Awkward Handshake Will Forever Haunt Our Dreams

UVerse must have accidentally let a Cardinal game through because last night we sat down and actually got to watch the Cardinals hammer the Diamondbacks. It had been a few days since we last watched a Cardinal game, so as we blissfully drank in the offensive displays that usually bore us and watched Lance Berkman’s grand slam shot float over the wall of Chase Field we had all but forgotten the thing that would later ruin the game for us.

This is the Greatest Jheri Curl Commercial Ever

We don’t want to over sell the video below, but it is, without question, the greatest thing I have seen on the internet ever. Yes, we’ve seen Little Superstar. It’s better. Its a commercial advertising Jheri Curls from a guy name Jarrell…and its in St. Louis!

Just look up there. Those piercing eyes of the guitarist. The glistening chest of Jarrell. That’s clearly Prince standing there on the right. This is totally set in someone’s basement. A better commercial has yet to be made!

We can just picture Jarrell sitting at home editing this directly on his camera attached to his VCR, laying back in his bean bag chair, Jheri curl wet spot growing behind him, thinking about now epic this ad is going to be, now much money and more importantly, chicks, he’s going to be pulling in after this airs. …as if he can handle more broads! Silk white pants like those aren’t made for keepin’ on, their for slidin’ off!

Click “read more” below to see the video! Go ahead and take your socks off first, just to be safe. We don’t want to be responsible for putting holes in your shoes.

Play Like a Cardinal Commercials 2k10

Baseball is nearly upon us and that means new Cardinal commercials. We have done our homework and watched each and every one, linked them below, and have a few quick facts as well. We don’t know why exactly the Cardinals need commercials, but we’re glad they still make them. Ok, so you don’t put in the newly acquired Matt Holiday, but you do put in Fredbird. Twice. Update: We stand corrected. [Read More]

We Don’t Get Fox’s All-Star Game Commercial

Have you seen the All-Star game commercials running on Fox yet? Here it is: What did you think? I thought it was a bit odd. The Arch as a magnet? What?! I just don’t get it. Can anyone explain why they went this way with a whole world of other, less odd, choices were in front of them? The one part that was pretty awesome was when Derek Jeter got “yanked” [Editor’s Note: Mental rimshot! [Read More]
