EERIE, Ind., July 22 (UPI) –
A YouTube user recorded an umpire going kind of nuts with his “Strike three” calls during a baseball game.
In the caption that accompanies the video, the poster wrote, “Best umpire since Leslie Nielsen! Best Strike 3 call ever! Funny as [expletive].”
(Nielsen is famous for an over-exaggerated third strike call in Naked Gun.)
There are three distinct strike calls in the video and although they are tough to decipher, these seem right:
Strikeout No. 1: “2 Chainz.”
Strikeout No. 2: “He got Gangham Style.”
Strikeout No. 3: “And he closes the show like the champ that he is.”
An umpire yelling, “2 Chainz”? My life has been made.Ã¢ € ” Adam Bernstorf (@IDoNotGiveAdam) July 22, 2014
It’s unclear exactly when the video was shot or where it took place, perhaps somewhere in April of 2013?
