Phanatic celebrates DVD release

Phanatic celebrates DVD release

When you saw the Phillie Phanatic at a hot Philadelphia night spot with his mother, you knew something big had to be going on.

Mom Phoebe accompanied the Phanatic and a host of other "celebrities" as baseball's best known mascot celebrated the release of his new DVD, "The Phillie Phanatic Goes Hollywood."

A crowd of masked "celebrities," including Marilyn Monroe and Sammy Davis Jr., and some onlookers attended the event at McFadden's restaurant outside Citizens Bank Park before Friday night's game against the Marlins.

"Philadelphia has a new star," said Joe Amodei, president of producer Hart Sharp Video. And with that, the Phanatic's newest venture went on the market.

Children 14 and under received a copy of the DVD upon arriving at Friday's game, while everyone else must wait until the 37-minute feature hits video stores. The DVD also includes a half-hour of bonus features, starring the Phanatic and broadcaster Larry Andersen.

The furry green mascot's first on-screen feature in eight years chronicles his trip to sunny Hollywood and his experiences at the center of the movie industry.
