Off the heels of the pitch-perfect 2013 Blue Jays Adventure RPG video comes a new video-game parody about the Toronto Blue Jays for your viewing pleasure.
This one, called Super Baseball Toronto GM Ninja Battle is a street-fighter style tale of Alex Anthopolous and his rise to power as the GM of the Jays. I won’t spoil any of the battles for you, just know that digital Beeston is nails.
This video is part of a great longread from Canadian Business and is the master work of @Cashewmirman, a Jays must-follow and creator of such frequently awesome content that I am sincerely doubting my own abilities in comparison. Check out all of his work at Weekend Punks, which currently features an animation of Anthony Gose running through a wall.
I do my best to try and make sure that all the posts on this site aren’t just variations of me going “LOL look at this instagram pic from one of the players!” but this is too good to let pass by without making sure as many eyeballs as possible see it. Emilio Bonifacio, the same mind that brought us Lo Viste, sent this to Jose Reyes, capitalizing on the Dominican Republic’s headline-making excitement over advancing to the World Baseball Classic semi-finals. It’s important to remember that things that happen in March often don’t have a gigantic impact on the rest of the season, but nobody would fault you if you started penciling Bonifacio onto your list of favourite Blue Jays.
Topical humour x internet meme humour + public social media = internet posts. It’s modern math, people. Emilio Bonifacio just wants some klout.
Off the heels of the success of the first batch of Blue Jays Valentine cards, I couldn’t help myself but to continue on and make another post with some of the cards that had otherwise fallen to the cutting room floor. Follow the jump for a few more tokens of appreciation that you can spread to your loves ones.
