Alec Baldwin fires up the NY/Boston rivalry by torching tickets (and his apartment)

In the name of Yankees pride, Alec Baldwin had punched John Krasinski in the face and humiliated his It’s Complicated co-star on the Yankee Stadium jumbotron. But things get a lot more heated in the latest commercial from New Era caps. After a particularly painful New York loss to the hated Red Sox, Baldwin finally burns his fingers by going too far. Take a look below as Baldwin gets his karmic due for torching a full-house of treasured Red Sox tickets.

Points to Krasinski, who through this entire ordeal, has proudly worn his team’s hat and proven himself the more authentic baseball fan. Here, he knows that singed tickets are still usable as long as the bar-code is intact. But the gem here is the 912-call. This is a total Jack Donaghy joke (“It’s 911 for rich people!”). Or is it…? 9 – 1 – 2. 912. Put a 1 in front and you have 1912. 1912: the year that Boston’s Fenway Park opened its doors and the year that Krasinski’s beloved Sox won their first World Series. Methinks Baldwin might be in for more trouble with this team of (New England?) writers.

How does this commercial compare to the others? And what was so heavy in Baldwin’s suitcase? Gold bullion? A dead body? Brass balls?

      Ha, are you high, KS? I’ve seen so many MORE Red Sox fans then ever before after they won the W.S. Get a clue.

      ah, like every other red sox fan, you’re better off not speaking.

    Hilarious. These guys work great together.

  • Elizabeth

    This is the only thing I like about this rivalry.

    • TQB

      As a die-hard Sox fan, I sincerely apologize and beg your forgiveness that this once-local thing has become a nationwide smackfest. Most of us are pretty embarrassed about it. It was really fun when we were the only ones who cared…

  • Kilmer

    Love the two of them, great chemistry.

  • Mary

    Technically they won their first WS in 1903 as the Boston Americans. Same franchise, just different name.

  • DJ

    They are becoming too long…

    • Liv

      I think they are hilarious and would gladly watch a half hour sitcom based on this premise. Maybe a six part mini series? I think they play off each other really well.

    912 is also a simpsons reference from waaay back. Stonecutters!

    • Garry

      I recognized it too! 912 was the emergency number used by the Stonecutters on the Simpsons!

  • Sydney
