He received a lot of attention for wearing an "I just look illegal," T-shirt during the team's championship parade last year as commentary on the hot topic of immigration.

Now he's teamed up with Three Twins Ice Cream for Sergio Romo's Mexican Chocolate: "It only tastes illegal."

The Three Twins Ice Cream Facebook page was hilarious about it.

In the comments, the company said that it doesn't think it'll be able to sell the ice cream at Giants games because it's not affiliated with the team. But both fans and ice cream aficionados alike were pumped about the flavor and the commentary.
