“For Boston slugger David Ortiz, his days of blasting home runs professionally may have passed, but retirement doesn’t mean he’s done hitting balls.” Skechers shows you, in its latest ad, how the top batter finds relaxation at the driving range in his own unique way while wearing Skechers Relaxed Fit shoes.
“Now that I’m retired, I’m spending time relaxing.” – says Big Papi, who’s hitting balls and causes some damage with them, breaking the window of a vehicle used to mow the lawn and staining the barista at the nearby coffee/food court. He concludes that he really should work on his slice.
The 30-second spot highlights that Skechers Relaxed Fit shoes offer a roomier fit and comfy Air-Cooled Memory Foam insole that feels so great it’s easy to enjoy life after the majors.
Ortiz stars in several other commercials for various companies, including TurboTax, for which he trade in his baseball bat for a tennis racket and destroys tennis balls, while waiting for his student to come to classes.
