New Steak Em Up Commercial to Make Phillies Games Watchable

The Phillies won’t be good this season. But at least we have a new Steak Em Up ad to enjoy all season.

It’s opening day! And, if the experts are any indication, the Phillies aren’t going to be very good this year. But a new season means new local television broadcasts, and new local TV spots. And, yes, there is a new(-ish) Steak Em Up commercial that aired over the weekend during exhibition games. And it is glorious.

I like that “parody of 1999-2002 Budweiser ad campaign” has become Steak Em Up’s “thing.” I think if Steak Em Up makes two more ad parodies, there will be more parodies than there were actual “Whassup?” ads. Before, all the pizza place had was the parody of The Cars’ “Shake It Up.” Now it has two parodies!


This ad may be the greatest Steak Em Up ad of all time, though.

Let's go through it, using GIFs, because there's a lot here.

This is Shawny Hill, right? Hill, once a fan who danced at Flyers games, is now an in-arena host for the team at the Wells Fargo Center. If he were connected to the early 1970s teams in any way, I'd peg him as the next GM.

Update: He does have a connection to the 70s team!

I expect him to get the job sometime in 2024.

This is an... umpire. We don't want any umpires in the Steak Em Up ad, they might rule against pizza and cheesesteaks.

Congratulations to Steak Em Up on finding the world's worst pirate costume. This is a pirate, right? What else could it be? Am I missing something here? The Steak Em Up commercial has me questioning everything I thought I knew about life.

Update: Enrico Campitelli from The 700 Level has the scoop.

Now it... sort of makes sense?

I'm surprised the world didn't explode during the filming of this commercial, this fist-bump was so cool.

And let's not forget the glorious logo, a gangster holding a cheesesteak instead of a Tommy gun. I predict Steak Em Up will go 162-0 this year.

    that’s not a Pirate. That is one of the greatest Stadium Concessions guys ever. His “Cold Beeer here” can be heard for sections. The only guy better then him is the guy with the robotic arm that cuts the tops off the cans.

    • Dan McQuade

      Thanks, I was informed of him on Twitter as well. I’ve updated the post. Not sure how I wasn’t aware of this guy; maybe because I usually sit up top?

      • Dukie

        Only thing Dan
        The guy at the end who gets approved
        Is the original Budweiser guy
        But great article and great commercial

    • in love

      i’ve always been kinda partial to the pistachio girl <3

    Someone who obviously has ties to Steak Em Up has “steak em up” spelled out in car emblem letters below the license plate on their white mercedes. It also, quite predictably, has fake AMG badges on it because it is not a legitimate AMG version.

  • Mike

    Yea ya gotta hate them fake 120k Mercedes FYI it is the AMG sport package which includes (Real AMG 19in rims,rear spoiler,and AMG sport ground effects and front bumper)

    • A. Pauld

      the legit AMG badge only goes on the S55, S63 and S65. It’s the engine not the accessories…it’s fakin the funk on a 550. sorry.

      • Lmao

        Faking the funk is putting your name as A.Pauld…anywho jealousy gets you nowhere. I’ve seen the car and it’s pretty badass…..

        • Still A. Pauld

          Not jealous, disappointed. As Mikey Miss would say, it’s a violation. You just can’t put an AMG badge on a Benz, and RS badge on an Audi or the M badge on a BMW unless you have the engine, not the wheels, the engine. it’s a model, not a set of options.

          • Bill

            I feel what your laying down but gonna have to disagree if it wasn’t an option them Mercedes wouldn’t sell THE AMG sport package OPTION and if it were only an engine then why does AMG put AMG on thr AMG Sport Package????

          • A. Pauled

            The AMG sport package does not come with the emblem for the back of the car. period. whoever bought the car knows this. they opted to put the AMG decal on it themselves. there is no debate on this. call a dealership if you think i’m wrong.

          • Bill

            Oh and your still A.Pauled because you probably drive a Kia and have Mercedes Benz posters all over your bedroom walls lol take care A.Pauld
