A preview of the spot has already been released, revealing Gray in his A's uniform toward the end. The right-hander is seen delivering a pitch out of the stretch for a swinging strikeout.

Though often soft-spoken, Gray is considered one of the goofiest members of the A's clubhouse. He has shown his love for performance since coming to the Majors, once pranking fans in downtown Manhattan.
