Giants players mimic Hunter Pence’s NLDS speech

Before game three of the NLDS between the Giants and Reds, Giants right fielder Hunter Pence gave the team an inspired speech in the clubhouse that was apparently good enough to make the Giants win ten out of their next 13 games and the World Series.

Well, on the Giants World Series DVD that was released on Tuesday, the Giants players recreated Pence's speech during the credits of the DVD. The results were pretty hilarious, including Pence's reaction of simply flat-out giggling while watching clips of his teammates imitating him, complete with crazy eyes and wild analogies. Included in the video are Buster Posey, Angel Pagan, Pablo Sandoval, and Barry Zito, among others.

This is some top notch comedy, and MLB needs to have more videos like this that show off the personalities of the players to market them a little better. Pence became a beloved figure in Philadelphia by saying "good game, let's go eat" after a walkoff win, and this video is something that could propel him to cult hero status in San Francisco with Giants fans.
