More on a Sad Day

If you were watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, during the second quarter a commercial ran for ESPN mobile phone.  One the athletes featured in the spot was Juan Pierre in a Cubs uniform.

Luckily, I didn't see it, but those who did (check the open thread) commented on how sad they were to see Juan in a Cubs uniform.  It turns out the ad wasn't completely accurate.

Pierre actually filmed the commercial months ago when he was a member of the Florida Marlins -- and he was wearing a Marlins uniform at that time. But the commercial's producers were able to update the ad and digitally impose a Cubs uniform on him, all the way down to his trademark high socks.

I doubt this will make anyone feel better about the situation but I found it interesting.  Sometimes technology is a pain.
