New Yorkers really, really do not like Joe Buck.

In a spoof Super Bowl commercial released Thursday, Buck gets abuse (and a pizza!) hurled at him from New Yorkers who make it clear they hate his guts.

Buck is in New York getting ready for Super Bowl XLVIII, where he and Troy Aikman will commentate to more than 100 million television viewers from MetLife Stadium.

For St. Louisans, there's a pot of gold at the end of this video rainbow: A St. Louis native pops in to say he's a big fan...of Jack Buck, Joe's father.

"No, you're a piece of shit," the St. Louisan tells Buck just as the sportscaster thinks he's found a fan.

If you're wondering, this is what it looks like when Buck is NOT in on the joke about how much he's hated in the northeast:

Buck partnered with Funny or Die, the video site run by Will Ferrell's company, to post the "failed" commercial.
