This ’30 for 30′ Parody About ‘Angels in the Outfield’ Is Perfect
The comic geniuses over at College Humor have produced a 30 for 30 parody that treats the events of Angels in the Outfield as if they were real.
You do remember Angels in the Outfield, right? The baseball movie where Doc Brown gets real angels to help the California Angels win more games so the little kid from 3rd Rock from the Sun can get his father back, or something?
It was super lame, of course. But the 30 for 30 parody is absolutely fantastic. It features fake experts and real ones (like ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian), there’s a guy who was actually in the movie (Neal McDonough) playing his character (Whitt Bass), it works in references to other fictions sports teams and athletes (like Wild Thing Ricky Vaughn), and it reminds us that Matthew McConaughey and Adrien Brody were both in that movie, which is amazing movie trivia.
You definitely need to stop what you’re doing right now (come on, it’s Friday, your boss won’t care) and watch it. We’ve seen a lot of 30 for 30 parodies over the years, but this one ranks right up there as one of the best.
Well done, College Humor. It would have been better if it had Matthew McConaughey, but I understand he has a busy schedule now that he’s an Oscar-winner and everything.
