Giants pitcher and all around American male Madison Bumgarner has shared his off-season regimen in a new commercial for Carhartt. Basically he chops down trees, lifts heavy things, and does other dude stuff you probably couldn't handle.
The World Series MVP stars in the workwear company's latest national ad campaign with a spot directed by his pal Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. Yeah, the two of them hang out, it's chill. But don't call MadBum a model or an actor. This is a documentary. Our bro is off-script, just doing what he does best. No, that's not baseball as we previously thought, it's chores around his 100-acre family North Carolina ranch. Sure, he could build a Field of Dreams-style stadium in a day, but he probably prizes his crops too highly to cut them down for an outfield.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, Bumgarner explains his real raison d'être: having rough hands. "Working with my hands is a big deal for me because I can’t stand having sissy hands, soft hands.” Hear that, sissies? Put on some Carhartt overalls and get ranching.
