Brian Wilson gets the call in this MLB 2K11 short film


3:40 PM on 01.31.2011



Last week, San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson appeared on Lopez Tonight to promote 2K Sports' Major League Baseball 2K11. As you'll see if you watch the clip (and I strongly recommend that you do, even in spite of the presence of George Lopez), the dude is out-there, but in a hilariously awesome way. To wit: Wilson dyed his thick beard gray and came out as a seaman -- with clownfish socks on, to boot.

Wilson showed an MLB 2K11 short film on the show, the first in a series of vignettes that he's been working on for 2K Sports. You can watch the minute-long clip, entitled "Brian Wilson Gets the Call," above. In it, Wilson receives a call (on a cell phone circa 1989) from his digital doppelgänger, who claims he'll win 2K's $1 million perfect-game prize before the real Wilson.

I thought it was pretty damn funny; it's apparent that Wilson possesses a not insignificant amount of acting talent. Sadly, the facial hair on Wilson's in-game model can't compare to the real deal (speaking of which, be sure to watch all the way to the end of the video).

Major League Baseball 2K11 hits stores on March 8th for 360, PS3, Wii, PC, PSP, and PS2.

Just as in real life, ball boys can be tricky little bastards. If you don't keep your eye on them, then this type of shit happens.more

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...more

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64

Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook]more
