Wilde was on hand to present Bumgarner with a well-deserved MVP award, which, as it is sponsored by Chevrolet, also comes with a new car. And let’s just say that, unlike Bumgarner, Wilde was a tad less than cool under World Series pressure. Take a look:
Wow, so much hilarious/cringe-worthy material there. I’ll give you another moment to watch that again, if only to shift your focus from Wilde, at the left, to MLB commissioner Bud Selig, at the right, who plays a marvelous Abbott to Wilde’s Costello.
But no one could steal the spotlight from Rikk Wilde (his real name, apparently), who touted the “all-new, 2015, uh, Chevy Colorado” as having, “class-winning, and leading, um, you know, technology and stuff.” Just a tremendous performance from a man who will likely never appear on camera again. The Twitter-verse exists, of course, to lap this stuff up, and it wasn’t long before the hashtag #
was trending, right there with #Game7, #Bumgarner and #Affeldt.
Oh, and one other thing about Chevy Guy: The car he so memorably presented to Bumgarner? IT’S BEEN RECALLED.
