After a summer in which their team became something of a laughingstock, at least the Red Sox can still laugh at themselves.

While they were at the ballpark for "Christmas at Fenway" this weekend, the players were apparently asked to help film a public service announcement for the annual Run to Home Base. Easy enough, right? Pull a jersey over your street clothes, sit in front of the camera, read the script that's been prepared for you. Should be simple.

Except these are the Red Sox -- so nothing is ever that simple. But at least in this case, the result is pretty funny.

The video's highlights include Jarrod Saltalamacchia battling some gum, Yale alum Ryan Lavarnway offering a suggestion on a script change, John Farrell stumbling over his words, and an appearance from Ryan Kalish's gigantic gold watch. Check it out.

And hope that by next summer you're not still wondering if the Sox are better ballplayers or spokespeople.
