How to Keep it Cool in Front of a Hot Lady

You don't really think this is genuine, do you?

Evan Longoria is pretty much the modern living embodiment of an absolutely bad-ass baseball player. Watch this next, to the ending.

It's an ad for Gillette. Which reminds me, I need razor blades.

@2 - I'm confused. That Snopes link just says FALSE, but doesn't say if it was faked or what exactly the deal is, as far as I can tell. Even if it was staged, the ball was still hit and he still caught it?

It's fake, it's old, and you need to figure out how to embed videos on the blog. It's hanging over into the margin.

@5: The magic of video.
8
I work for Gillette now.

Dare I ask what he said after? Couldn't hear it.
10
If you thought this was real for even a moment, you are a sap.

11
Yeah, I wish the Snopes article explained how they did it. It's pretty good editing. Maybe it's not a real ball, so if he missed it wouldn't hurt him?
12
@9 "Keep it on the field."
13
@10 - guilty.
14
I wish it was real. Now I hate the internets.

The best thing about it is that the question she asks, and the response he supplies, is so pitch-perfectly banal that it could be recorded during Spring Training and played back just before the playoffs without betraying a hint of implausibility.
16
First time I saw this, back in 1995, I thought it was real, too.
17
Another clue that it's fake: The batter is supposedly taking batting practice, but there's no batting cage behind him, and the pitcher isn't standing behind a protective screen either.
18
Eva Longoria looks like shit without makeup.
19
Fake fake fake

welcome to the internet, please follow me

Had me too... until I saw the pitcher had no reaction at all.

@5, yeah the snopes article is vague. Let me try to clear it up a bit: The line drive that you're seeing in that shot is not real. There was no ball coming at our fine young reporter's ear. The quote from Longoria about how quickly that segment was shot is misleading because they shot an actual whole commercial during the same evening, in addition to this quick one. Think about it - he's amazed that it's so popular --BECAUSE it's just a commercial, not an act of superhuman badassery.
