Hunter Pence stars as “Bluto” as Giants go “Animal House”
Given the Giants’ three-game losing streak, we thought Giants fans might need something to cheer them up.
The Giants have a longstanding tradition of producing clever commercials, and this year’s spots include a send-up to Hunter Pence’s pre-game speeches during last season’s World Series run and the movie classic “Animal House.”
- Hunter Pence as Bluto
- Buster Posey at Otter
- Tim Lincecum as Boon
- Brandon Belt as D-Day
- Madison Bumgarner as Stork
- Barry Zito as Pinto
- Jeremy Affelt as Hoover

Not bad. Not bad.
It seems appropriate that the Giants pay tribute to “Animal House” consider their roster includes a Panda, Baby Giraffe, White Shark, Horse, Crazy Horse and a Gopher. OK, that last one hasn’t caught on as we had hoped, but we’re not giving up.
