In 2017, the Houston Astros cheated the LA Dodgers out of a world championship. The players illegally stole signs then told the batter what pitch was coming by hitting trash cans in the dugout. In a time of utter betrayal, Rubbermaid wanted to reassure Dodger fans that their cans would never hurt them. This campaign would run solely in Los Angeles, where the heartbreak was most felt.

The Astros were appropriately nicknamed the Houston Asterisks after the news broke about their unearned championship.
