Street Talk Terrible Towels around Baltimore

Posted in Street Talk

If you’ve watched ESPN at all over the past year or so, you’ve undoubtedly seen their “Terrible Towels Around the World” commercial.

I won’t soil this gorgeous Ravens fan page by embedding the video, but here is a link to it, if you’re so inclined.

If you need a reminder – or if you couldn’t bring yourself to click the link (can’t blame you) – basically the commercial is a montage of photos and very short video clips of those bandwagon riding Steelers fans going all over the world with their stupid little yellow rags – deserts, pyramids, The Great Wall of China..you get the idea.

Well, we decided that, in honor of Ravens-Steelers week, we would put together our own version of this commercial, a spoof like we like to call “Terrible Towels around Baltimore.”

Have a look:
