Watch the World-Famous New York Yankees Beg for Recognition in This New Ad From Wix

The company’s latest in a long string of sports-themed spots

It’s no secret that collaboration is essential to growth, but the how of it isn’t always so clear—and it's the understanding of how that is a true competitive advantage. Join Adweek X, a uniquely formatted event on December 4 in LA, to unlock fresh perspectives, true collaboration and growth.

If there’s one team in professional sports that doesn’t have to bother promoting itself, it’s the New York Yankees. The 114-year-old club is the best known in baseball. Fame can cut both ways, of course, as recent polls have crowned the Yankees as both America’s favorite team and its most hated, the latter presumably because of the team’s legendarily deep pockets. But whichever side of the divide you stand on, it’s a given that the boys in pinstripes need no help being recognized.

That truism furnishes the absurdist context in a new spot for web-development company Wix, which sees several members of the team making rather desperate pleas for recognition.
