The Phillie Phanatic and Mr. Met set aside bad blood for good cause

Who says familiar foes can’t become friends? If the Phillie Phanatic and Mr. Met can set aside their differences to dine together, anyone can.

A new MasterCard commercial, which aired during Monday night’s Major League Baseball Home Run Derby, showed that even those with the most checkered history can set aside their differences and dine together for a good cause.

The ad, which shows the two mischievous mascots overlooking past pranks, highlights the fact that portions of purchases made with a MasterCard will be donated to the Stand Up To Cancer initiative.

Interestingly enough, the ad didn’t show which mascot’s MasterCard was used to foot the bill.

While it is admirable that the two were able to set aside their bad blood for a good cause, don’t expect the accord to carry over into the next series between the two teams.
