The San Francisco Giants announced a new bobblehead today. It features a jogging version of Matt Cain. I’ll let the Giants explain:
The San Francisco Giant Race announced today the release of the first-ever Matt Cain runner bobblehead finisher prize. The exclusive bobblehead features Giants pitcher Matt Cain in running shoes, shorts and a custom orange headband. The bobblehead is available only to those who register for the September 16th Giant Race that finishes on the field at AT&T Park.
As a long-time supporter of the Giant Race and its charity partner, Project Open Hand, Cain was pleased to lend his likeness to the Giant Race giveaway.
The Giant Race will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2012. Featuring a half marathon, 10K and 5K, the Giant Race is one of San Francisco’s premier road races. All courses will start at AT&T Park and travel along the Embarcadero waterfront with the half marathon continuing through PIER 39, Fort Mason and the Marina. All courses will finish on the field at AT&T Park.
Does that bobblehead look familiar to you? I saw someone on Twitter mention a resemblance to Mark Zuckerberg. Can’t disagree there, but when I first saw the Cain bobblehead a different person came to my mind…
Michael Sera in Juno.
Change the colors of the bobblehead’s headband, tank top (sorry runners, “racing singlet”), socks and shorts that are shorter than anything I can imagine Cain ever wearing, then add some wrist bands. Pretty spot-on, wouldn’t you say?
So Buster Posey looks like Napoleon Dynamite, Tim Lincecum looks like Mitch Kramer (the kid from Dazed and Confused), Brian Wilson has an obsession with becoming the next Zach Galifianakis and now Cain and Michael Cera are one and the same. The next logical step is to hire Judd Apatow and get to work on the next great indie comedy.
Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Jason Segel are going to be sooooo jealous.
