Just over a week ago, Cody Bellinger took home National League Player of the Month honors for April. Now – Bellinger has increased his celebrity status – by starring in a commercial for BMW automobiles.
Word of the commercial spread quickly during the Dodgers shutout win over the Braves at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday evening. If this is the first you have heard of Cody’s screen debut, you’re in luck. We have the commercial for you!

Cody is telling you about his drive home from the stadium. Indeed, that drive from the stadium to home gives him that escape. However, that’s not all. He’s also telling you about the cruise control, sun roof, and windows down he enjoys while cruising down the PCH.
Who knows, maybe it is the smooth ride of a BMW that relaxes Bellinger’s mind enough to keep his average over .400 into mid-May.
Certainly, we have heard players talk before about the whole ‘look good, feel good, play good’ approach. The car that an athlete drives is no different.
Therefore, Bellinger really feels that the BMW X7 with the gesture control that you can ‘turn up’ (notice his motioning) is top-level.
This was Bellinger’s biggest non-baseball appearance on national television since he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live a year ago. So what do you all think of Bellinger’s demeanor in the commercial? Is he a natural? Are we looking at a future analyst alongside Alex Rodriguez here?
Or are Cody’s best talents making the spectacular catch in right field at Chavez Ravine? Let us know what comes to mind in the comments below.
