Somehow Mr. Met Is More Famous Than the Phillie Phanatic

The Davie Brown Index measures public perception of celebrities and public figures and how they influence certain brands. The latest DBI survey on sports mascots apparently shows that Mr. Met is the top mascot in baseball. According to Forbes, the Phillie Phanatic finished a “solid second.” We refuse to believe that this is an accurate measure of popularity or effectiveness. But, just in case, we’d like to remind Mets fans that Bobby Bonilla is still on the team’s payroll and that the Phantic slept with Mrs. Met on Conan O’Brien few years back. [Forbes]
