Ringu Ghost Throws Out the First Pitch for Some Reason


In keeping up with the newly-founded American tradition of inexplicably inviting the Three Stooges to professional wrestling matches, Japan too is finding ways to utterly confuse sports spectators with out-of-place, unfocused film tie-ins. In promotion of the upcoming Ringu sequel, Sadako 3D, one of Japan's baseball teams recently allowed Sadako--the Ringu series' famous, long-haired nightgown spectre--to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, much to the polite applause of the crowd. Why not, right, Japan? As you'll see below, the ghoul really hammed it up out there, then really threw like a girl even though I think Sadako is hermaphroditic.

Thanks to Brian, who correctly noted "this is truly ridiculous," because it kind of is, but it is still not as ridiculously incongruous as Sadako Hello Kitty products.
