Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez takes home the “Best Dad Award” for the stunt he pulled Thursday afternoon.
Gomez’s 4-year-old son is a big fan of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” so Gomez ordered the costume of the character Leonardo to surprise him.
“That cartoon is my son’s favorite,” Gomez said, via FOXSports.com. “He’s crazy about it. I ordered (the costume) and I will go home tonight dressed like a Ninja Turtle. I ordered it online like 20 days ago. That thing came from China.”
Before he wore the costume at home for his son, though, the Brewers outfielder decided to have a little fun with teammate Mark Reynolds.
During Reynolds’ interview with MLB Network’s “Intentional Talk,” Gomez appeared in the background wearing the Leonardo costume. The video bomb even included some solid dance moves.
Gomez finally took off the head part of the costume at the end of the interview to get some much-needed air. Regardless of how it ended, this is definitely one of the more creative video bombs of the year.
