I’m not the same man I was before watching this commercial.
Kiley Kmiec of NextImpulseSports.com spotted the advertisement, which is set on a grassy, oceanside vista. Synth piano music welcomes you to “Tranquilo Yoga with Miggy,” an experience that manages to make viewers feel both enlightened and violated at the same time.
The “Miggylitas” join Cabrera on a wooden platform, and the three go about making you a
better gamer better person with a series of deep stretches and MLB The Show tutorials.
The Miggylitas go about their routine in yoga attire; Cabrera wears his full uniform. All is aligned and flowing in tune with the Great Magnet. They share the wisdom of the headfirst slide. It’s the only slide you need, because it looks coolest.
Then this happens:

That’s it. It’s all over. We’ve officially skipped every cobblestone step on the Eightfold Path and cut straight to Nirvana.
Happiness is two women holding Miguel Cabrera’s fake legs next to the ocean. I’ll never look at stretching the same again.
Be on the lookout for more off-the-wall commercials for MLB 14 The Show. PlayStation has developed an entire ad campaign for the game called "Baseball Is Better."
We could be seeing "Miggy Mixed Martial Arts" before these ads have run their course. Personally, I'd like to some "Miggy Mambo" lessons. I picture Cabrera swiveling his hips in a mambo line as he teaches gamers how to initiate the bat waggle.
