“Bryant’s a Better 3B”: Kris Bryant Pranks Fantasy Baseball Draft with Pizza, Red Bull, and Unsolicited Advice

Chicago Cubs

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:

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.
