Smashing Smoke Vol. 2 – Thrillride Delivers an Inspirational Laser Show for UNC Wilmington

 

Obviously, this is a must watch for any College Baseball Bro. In this video, Thrillride delivers an inspiration laser-show to the defending Colonial Athletic Association Champion UNC Wilmington Baseball Team. But, Thrilly wanted to post this publicly because this applies to every single college baseball player (particularly in New England) that have spent all winter indoors, playing long-toss, lifting weights and are now ready to head down south for the spring.

Thrilly managed to drop one-liners about Jerry Sandusky, Jared Fogle and Michael J. Fox in a single video about baseball. Those are the names that made the cut. I edited out how pitchers shouldn’t hang curveballs like Robin Williams or like Chris Benoit on his BoFlex.

Too soon? Nah. They quit… RRRRAHHHHH!!!

Obviously, the most eye-catching part of this video (besides the amazing Ryan Braun Team USA World Baseball Classic Jersey with American Flag Zubaz pants) is how incredible my swing continues to look after years off. It’s like riding a bike, bro.

Smashing Smoke – Hitting Tips Vol. 1

Obviously, there wasn’t a Vol 2 ever made. But, there probably should be. And with wrestling in the rearview mirror, it probably makes sense for me to provide some hitting advice for Little League J-Brones that will never grow up and be as talented as I was.

Take aways from this video: 1) After years off playing baseball, my swing is still fucking majestic. 2) I’m still mad at myself for leaving my vintage Thrillride Shades at the house before shooting. 3) The only reason I was shirtless was because I sweat through my tank early because it was 98 degrees, early on 4th of July weekend. It worked out because it added to the douche factor.

This one was my 2nd biggest video I ever did, until the 2016 AFC Championship video, when I talked about how Peyton Manning injects aborted fetuses in his neck before he eventually beat the Pats (which is now #2 most watched). I was at a Cape House with my buddy the “Sure Thing” Mark Shurman, chasing girls a few years ago, as this thing went viral. It was a lot of fun. Now, I’m engaged to be married. FUN TIMES.

MMMPPPOWWW!
