Ichiro's Sean Connery Impression

Spring Training has brought a wave of player Tim Kurkjian impression videos. But, in one of five commercials from the Seattle Mariners' 2012 advertising campaign to debut this week, we see that player impressions are not limited to mimicking the popular ESPN personality. In the spot, Mariners infielder Brendan Ryan and Ichiro get into a battle of classic movie character impersonations. With a unique take on Sean Connery as James Bond, Ichiro wins the battle in the clubhouse.

As an aside, the Mariners continue to produce hilarious ads. Last year saw the introduction of the popular fictional character Larry Bernandez; this year the spots are even funnier. Click here to watch all five.
