Drew and Bob lay their vaguely sports themed shorties to rest for January and we end it all on nothing less than the mascot world’s very own version of Jesus Christ. The 1984 San Francisco Giants were in the toilet for the season. A silly television commercial starring a touristy San Fran mascot reject became an on-field sponge for fan hate. A mime named Wayne + A hand full of batteries ÷ director Colin Hanks and you have a short documentary appropriately titled “The Anti-Mascot”. Grab your water balloon full of fun and prepare for the most hated crab in Giantsland. It got body slammed by the San Diego Padres for our sins.
