If we told you that Nick Swisher, the biggest bro in all of baseball, spends his evenings singing Van Halen songs and recounting the plot of "Die Hard," you'd think that was pretty accurate, wouldn't you?
As it turns out, this video about being roommates with Swisher, the Cleveland Indians first baseman, is a piece of comedic fiction, given to the world by Cleveland comedian Mike Polk Jr. A comedian making a sketch with a baseball player could get painful fast, but this is actually really funny.
Polk: "Nick, are you drinking a Red Bull right before you go to bed?"
Swisher: "Yeah, I gotta have a lot of energy in my dreams tonight."
Polk is the comedian who made the Internet classic "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video," if you're still on the fence about watching this. So the guy is legit.
And while it might seem like a production goof, we're not entirely sure whether Nick Swisher takes off his Indians cap before going to bed.
