Finding a funny moment that involves San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson is not a difficult task. The name "Brian Wilson" and the word "funny" just go together. Wilson's eccentric personality makes him one of baseball's most charismatic players, and his over-the-top antics make him a highly sought after person for advertisments.
Here is a list of five of Brian Wilson's funniest moments:
Ahoy, Captain Wilson: When Brian Wilson showed up on "Lopez Tonight," his humor started before he even opened his mouth. Wilson showed up wearing a sailor's outfit, complete with a grey beard (and two hats). Wilson discussed his "relaxing" trip to Thailand and dry humping in the bullpen, and he promoted the game MLB 2K11. The Machine even made an appearance.
The ESPYs: One of Brian Wilson's most memorable moments just may be the outfit he wore to the 2011 ESPYs. Wilson showed up wearing a skin-tight black and white spandex tuxedo. If that wasn't enough, in 2012, Wilson's date to the award show was Sasquatch.
Got Heeeem: Brian Wilson explains how the catchphrase "got heeem" can be used in different situations during an ad for the Showtime show "The Franchise: A Season with the San Francisco Giants." The ad lasts 59 seconds, but it does not disappoint on the humor level. Wilson refers to his new catchphrase as a "gorgeous freaking term".
Larry Bird: It was hard to stop laughing at the fact that Brian Wilson was dressed up as Larry Bird, complete with '80s-style basketball shorts and a blonde wig during his ad for the game NBA 2K12. Wilson then goes on to describe his favorite NBA team, the 1986 Boston Celtics. He describes how all the members from that team blended together to make a strawberry milkshake -- because they're sweet! Wilson ends the ad with an Irish accent because "who doesn't love leprechauns?"
The Machine: While on an episode of "Cheap Seats," The Machine made an appearance. A man dressed in bondage gear made a brief walk-by in the background, supposedly unbeknownst to Wilson. Wilson then went on to say that the man was indeed The Machine, and he just stopped by to borrow some sugar.
