John Mayer Is My New Favorite Announcer

Thursday, March 27, 2008

I was going to post this saying that this Anonymous guy is my new favorite announcer, but after a little sleuth work (I read the YouTube comments) I found out that it's musician John Mayer. He is in Japan for some reason, and this is the best call of an at-bat I've heard in quite awhile.....



"And that happened" is now my new favorite catchphrase. I will use it until it's no longer funny.

The ball bounces past the white line, I don't know what that means!

One yellow and one blue for Dustin:):)

That performance was a million times better than his cover of the internet sensation "Chocolate Rain."

He had a funny variety show on TV not long ago.

Still not as funny as his Chappele's Show appearance.

If it came out of Mayer's mouth, it already isn't funny anymore.

John had some good seats. I seem to remember him speaking Japanese to a reporter as a goof a few years ago, so he seems to be fond of Japan, and if he likes the Red Sox why not invest in an Opening Day vacation? Lord knows if I had his money I'd be flying to New York to catch the Yankees' Opening Day.

Mayer should do an inning of every game this season, for every team. ;)

That was great.

Whenever I think of John Mayer, I think of him stealing Borat's lime green bikini, oh whatever the hell that was. Not a good image to have BTW.

Mayer's from Fairfield, CT! How does he not have a clue about baseball? I can't stand his music, but at least he has the humor to admit he's got NO IDEA what ANYTHING in baseball means...

Judging by the comments (which is a dumb thing to do I know), this video would probably have been better, if it was set up by stating that this was being broadcast by "some anonymous announcer".
Apparently, John Mayer hits a nerve. And it's funnier without that context.
