Terrible Towels around Baltimore

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:
