I’m not sure I totally get the point of this, but it has a bunch of Marvel heroes doing sometimes amusing goofy stuff.

 

The Cubs/White Sox New Era commercials with the guy who plays Ron Swanson continue to be better than last year’s Sox/Yankees ones (but this has me expecting some terrible Dodgers/Giants ones next year):
