It’s Friday, and if you’re an East Coaster like me, you’ve probably already stocked up on the supplies necessary to survive Winter Storm Jonas – he always the best Jonas Brother – and are now in search of ways to pass the interminable hours spent hunkered down in your shelter.
Well, look no further than this amazing clip of a dude displaying the kind of bat skills that would give Jose Bautista pause.
Of course, the bat flip at the end is only like the 15th most amazing thing about this video, which was posted on Reddit Thursday. The behind-the-back bat bounce, the spin midway through his swing, the way he sheaths his lumber like a samurai sword after crushing the ball – this one’s got a little bit of everything, and the fact that no one seems to know the identity of the guy doing the swinging only adds to its appeal. Somewhere out there, the Batman lurks.
Is it as impressive as the dude who sliced a fastball in half with a sword? Probably not. Does it matter that this clip only clocks in at around 7 seconds? Only if you don’t mind watching it something like 23,000 times to make it through this weekend’s blizzard. And hey, if you’re still looking for ways to binge-watch your way through the wintery menace, there’s a Lucha Underground marathon on El Rey starting Saturday morning – that ought to heat you up.
