New York Mets’ Bartolo Colon & Noah Syndergaard Star In ‘Chicks Dig The Long Ball,’ Part Deux (Video)

New York Mets starting pitchers Bartolo Colon and Noah Syndergaard decided to remake a classic Nike commercial thanks to their recent heroics.

Remember that lovable decade we called the 1990s?

‘Seinfeld’ ruled the Earth, short shorts were almost on its way out, and Bill Clinton was doing his thing in the oval office.

Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa also did their best phony impression en route to shattering the single-season home run record.

Thanks to homers flying out of the part left and right, Atlanta Braves starters Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine did a spot for Nike titled “Chicks Dig The Long Ball.”

The phrase became something of a cult classic.


Now, thanks to New York Mets pitchers Bartolo Colon and Noah Syndergaard smacking three total home runs over the last week, KFC over at Barstool Sports decided to put together his own version of Chicks Did The Long Ball.

This time, it features Big Sexy and Thor (video above).

Here’s the original:
