What looks like a pretty dead on recreation of the classic American Express commercial from the movie Major League, turns out to be a horribly inappropriate at the end.

The commercial, which is almost shot for shot dead on with the one from the film and is word for word the same as the one Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen and Wesley Snipes did for the 1989 film, was put out by Crocetta Baseball Club based in Parma, Italy.

This would have been a big win for the team, if it wasn’t for the last five seconds. The moment when, in the movie version, Willie Mays Hayes (Wesley Snipes) slides into home plate with an American Express Card is redone with another member of the team sliding in the same fashion. The big difference is that in the YouTube video a member of the team credited as ‘Matte’ slides in wearing black face.

There is no description on the video as to what the video is actually for other than to say it is a “Tribute to the Movie ‘Major League.'”

What could have been a decent and even funny ‘tribute’ turned out to be a head scratching, probably viral YouTube video, that just boggles the reasonable mind.
