This commercial, which a lot of you saw Sunday night during the Padres-Dodgers game, is very cute and charming. As long as you ignore the darker implications of it.
Think about it though: What if the God-like kid voice gets bored making Mike Trout do baseball stuff?
What if things went down a twisted and tragic road?
“Simon says, take that machine gun and murder everyone in the dugout!!!”
That scenario could easily be taken in a Twilight Zone direction. Remember the one with Bill Mumy?
Oh my God he turned that guy into a Jack-in-the-box!!!
It’s always fun until someone begins abusing his God-like powers.
