The San Francisco Giants remade the Full House opening, and the comedic timing on each players’ part is impeccable.
Leading off the video is Brandon Crawford playing the one and only Uncle Jesse. Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first Crawford and John Stamos comparison.

Since the comparison has been in existence for the past few years, it’s likely the marketing team for the Giants saw an opportunity arise after the Full House reunion show was announced.
One way or another, they had to find an excuse to spotlight Crawfords’ slick head of hair for all the ladies in the audience.
And how about Hunter Pence buffing that scooter!
What a dreamboat.
He also looks oddly like Danny Tanner when he’s cleaning that steel rod.
The clip that steals the show has to be the Jeremy Affeldt & Bruce Bochy interaction. I won’t give it away, so you’ll have to watch the whole 0:51 spoof to see for yourself. Not to mention a surprise appearance by none other than Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier).
Shocking Dave was available.
All other Major League Baseball organizations should take note of this marketing campaign and literally mimic it for your respective city.
Chicago Cubs — Married With Children
Chicago White Sox — Family Matters
Baltimore Orioles — The Wire
New York Mets — Seinfeld
Miami Marlins — Miami Vice
Oakland Athletics — Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Detroit Tigers — Home Improvement
Any others I missed?
Play the original Full House intro first before you play the San Francisco Giants rendition.
It brings it all full circle.
The only downside to the spoof intro:
No Jesse and the Rippers.
