E-5 on A Rod?

I don’t normally post about baseball, especially during basketball season, but this is too weird to pass up.
While watching the tournament this weekend (or maybe it was while watching SportsCenter) I saw an old Alex Rodriguez commercial. It’s the one where his doorman throws him a ball while he’s jogging and later a reporter asks him “So Alex, only one homerun today?” before he smiles and says “Tough town.” It’s an old commercial that they’ve brought back for baseball season. I can’t even remember what it’s for. Right Guard, maybe? (or is it for a lip gloss?)
Anyway, at the end of the commercial, there’s a shot of a ballfield at night. There is a bank of stadium lights in the lower center of the screen. As is normal, several of the lights are out. The pattern of lights seems to clearly spell out E5.
Is this a coincidence? Was there a Red Sox fan involved in post-production who thought maybe he’d play a little prank? I don’t know, but I think it’s pretty damn funny.
If I can find a screenshot, I’ll post it here. Let me know if you know where I can get one.
Update: I’m not the only one who’s noticed. The Boston Dirt Dogs picked up on it last week. Scroll down a bit.
