The Kris Bryant-Red Bull corporate partnership continues with yet another prank – involving a disguise and some pizza – but before we get to it, let’s take a quick look back at what else has come from this sponsorship:
- Kris Bryant thinks he’s hitting off the sound guy, but it’s actually Greg Maddux
- Kris Bryant drives a Lyft around Chicago
- Kris Bryant tight walks between the towers of Notre Dame
- Kris Bryant pretends to be the new kid
- Kris Bryant drives super fast sports cars
Today’s fun involves Kris Bryant dressing up as “‘Kristio,’ owner and operator of Kristio’s Pizza and Wings,” while he delivers pizza to fantasy baseball drafts and butts in a little too much.
Check it out:
[Brett: Sneaky best part in there? At the 4:10 mark, the participants are discussing taking an unnamed 40-homer third baseman off the board at pick number seven when Bryant slides by and casually says, “Bryant’s a better third baseman.” I choose to believe – and I know I’m correct – the unnamed player in that moment was Nolan Arenado, because that would be especially hilarious.]
This has seriously been one of the most enjoyable and hilarious series. I especially like when Red Bull makes the Cubs most important player do dangerous stunts in the offseason (NOT).
I kid, I kid. It’s all awesome, and, hey, at least this time around was just a safe, good old fashioned prank. And sure, it’s sponsored stuff for Bryant, but there’s nothing wrong with getting paid, especially when it’s as good/funny as this.
Well done, Red Bull and Kristio. Well done. More on the prank and the Kris Bryant Red Bull can here.
