From the criminally under-appreciated 12 Angry Mascots comes the next step in the Brian Wilson-style “turn relief pitchers into hilarious meta characters” thing we tried so desperately to do seven years ago with Cubs/everyone else reliever Kyle Farnsworth.
Watch in abject horror/amazement as downtrodden party-goers are visited by Milwaukee Brewers reliever John Axford, who uses an aerosol can to spray mustaches onto their faces while Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “Takin Care Of Business” plays in the background. It takes a weird turn near the end, but I don’t want to spoil it for you. I think my next major career goal is going to be “be the guy who gets to travel around the country making weird YouTube videos with baseball guys”. What, Jim Thome can dress like Paul Bunyan to sell Twins tickets but he’s too good to remake 5-minutes-to-all of The Searchers with me?
Secondary achievement of this video: now I know who John Axford is.
If you like that, click through and watch my favorite of their videos, because Jesus, more people need to make fun of the f**king Batting Stance Guy.
