In the commercial, which was supposed to be for jacket night, Tom Paciorek starts by saying the giveaway is funny nose glasses night, which he is corrected by Cashman saying it's actually jacket night. The night the Mariners gave away a Mariniers vinyl rain jacket, many fans were disappointed that they didn't receive the funny nose glasses, so in April of 1982 against the New York Yankees, fans were given a pair of funny nose glasses and throughout the game could receive prizes if their face with the nose glasses on, was shown on the Diamond vision screen.
