Some things are relatively predictable: The Giants won another very close World Series, the city of San Francisco flipped out (the Queen singalong above was one of the milder scenes), and a bunch of brands took to social media to congratulate the team.
Let’s review some of the winners.
Yes, we already covered this one. But Chevy clearly won the World Series of brand responses even though they didn’t mention either team.

An older entry that wasn’t quite “real-time,” but it was still topical.

9. Milk Bone
There’s no crying in baseball…but there may be dogs.
All in good pun.
This brand just stretched further than Baumgarner during his warm-up.
12. Big League Chew
As former Little Leaguers, we can’t pass this one up because nostalgia.
Another one we remember, plus the hash tag and the tie-in.

14. Checkers Foods
Aww, Checkers. We’re fairly sure the Lorde ban has been lifted, so play away.

Not a brand, but we did find this tweet from The Pope’s “PR Guru” amusing.
