A few days ago news broke that Billy Beane and the Oakland A’s had signed Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima. After the Tuesday signing, a bizarre viral video appeared from Next Media Animations out of Taiwan.
The animated video depicts Nakajima dreams coming true with signing with “the Moneyball A’s” including him dancing with Billy Beane (depicted as Brad Pitt). Then it just gets weird.
A few highlights include: Japanese fans saying goodbye in Borat swimsuits, owner Lew Wolff using a bullwhip on players, and a Mortal Kombat showdown between Nakajima and fellow countryman Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers.
Watch all the weird below!
