I thought the cartoons were pretty cute when they were advertising the holiday packs, and I even went as far as to ask a friend who works for the team if the cartoons were drawn by someone internal or if they had it done.
Then the video came out. Watch it here. (It doesn't appear to be embeddable.)
And I thought it was ridiculous, so I asked Twitter what they thought...
Does anyone over the age of 21 with all their mental faculties actually like this year's Braves holiday card? Serious question.

@braveslove it. is. terrible. Last year's was good, they should have just done the same theme. This is awful.

@braveslove I liked the part when JHey is talking. After that, not so much.

@braveslove uhhh...am i the only person who thinks it's kinda cute? is it b/c i didn't see last year's?

This probably cost just as much to create as last year's Jingle Bells card, and this isn't fun at all. (I just watched last year's card twice and now I need to fix my makeup before work - so funny and wonderful!)
Sorry Braves. This didn't work for me.
