Unless you’ve been living in a cave with no wifi or television this year, you’ll be fully aware of what Hunter Pence signs are. Given Pence’s rather, unorthodox, to say the least, playing style, fans of opposing teams attempted to mock him via these signs. For example, they would state that Pence loves something you should hate, or does something the complete polar opposite to how it is actually meant to be done. Stupid, yet brilliant.
These signs became huge. They consumed baseball and non baseball fans alike for weeks, everyone was getting in on the action for a while. Thankfully, given than Pence is one of the nicest, most genuine and easy going people alive, he loved it. Rather than getting upset, annoyed or taking his anger out on the fans who started it, he embraced it. In true, unorthodox Hunter fashion.
I guess the best way to sum up Hunter as a person is with one incident from earlier in the season. Unlike most rich baseball players, the outfielder for the Giants doesn’t drive a million pound sports car to the stadium everyday. Nope. He rides his scooter, to beat the San Francisco traffic. When it went missing earlier in the year, a full blown search mission was launched, because, well, it’s Hunter Pence.
Just when we thought the heckling had finally stopped, Pence, himself, has brought new life to the saga. ‘Hunter Pence Signs’ was uploaded to Youtube this week. The video is an hilarious rap-video-parody based on the signs, featuring non-other than Hunter himself. The right fielder for the San Francisco Giants is having an MVP campaign on and off the field. He was not only won over Giants fans and baseball experts, he was won the internet. And here is proof:
The video, as aforementioned, is based on the signs. Hence, it features clips of him eating pizza with a fork, and doing all kinds of weird and wonderful stuff that shouldn’t be done. Hunter has won the internet. A World Series ring or an MVP would go along with that achievement nicely.
