How to make Derek Jeter see green (and red)

Check out this hilarious ESPN commercial.

The 30-second ESPN SportsCenter commercials are among the cleverest spots on TV, and one that premiered today is no exception.

It shows Yankees star Derek Jeter at a sink in the ESPN locker room, holding his razor (naturally, made by his sponsor Gillette), which is covered in green fur.

Jeter accuses others of using the razor, before the culprit emerges from the shower.

And at once you remember the 2009 World Series rivalry.

Wieden+Kennedy shot the spot Aug. 19, and that's Tom Burgoyne himself as his alter ego.

Play it here. Pay special attention to the end.
