What do you get when you cross a Monty Python skit with the sport of baseball? A ministry of funny observations about America's great pastime.
Comedian Anthony Richardson used a British cricket announcer's take on a Yankees-Red Sox "rounders" match to put a new spin on the game. The commentary includes "chaps in pajamas scuttling off for a nap," a fascination with plastic bags and an appearance at the plate by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The clip already has over 400,000 hits on YouTube.
This announcer could actually make the arduous task of watching a typical five-hour Yanks-Sox marathon breeze by.
