Green Monster Pays a Visit to the Big Apple in Time for Red Sox-Yankees Showdown

There’s nothing New Yorkers love more than a little bit of Boston in Manhattan, right?

Well, Benjamin Moore feels the same way.

In the video above, the paint company takes a swing at the Red Sox and Yankees rivalry — which continues at Fenway this weekend — by bringing a replica of the famed Green Monster wall to the streets of New York City. The promotional video features real New Yorkers responding to some ribbing from the Wall, making for amusing reactions – and interactions.

The video was filmed in support of the Benjamin Moore Fenway Collection, a limited-edition collection of paint featuring the iconic colors of Fenway Park. The collection gives Red Sox fans a way to incorporate those shades, including Green Monster, Boston Blue, Boston Red, Baseline White and Foul Pole Yellow, in their own homes.
