I'm not sure the folks at Pepto-Bismol (or at least their advertising agency) know what Cinco de Mayo celebrates.
No, it doesn't celebrate fruit in beer and enchiladas -- although that is a perfectly acceptable way to celebrate the holiday. No, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
You know what country had zero to do with the Battle of Puebla? Cuba.
You know where Aroldis Chapman is from? Cuba.
But that didn't stop Pepto-Bismol (or its Cincinnati-based maker, Procter and Gamble) from using the Reds' Chapman in a Cinco de Mayo-themed commercial. Check it out:
Besides the fact Chapman is in it and he's Cuban and not Mexican, it's a decent commercial, I guess.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
