Miami Marlins infielder Martin Prado may have played the hero during Sunday’s 6-1 win over the Chicago Cubs, but he certainly looked like a villain during his post-game interview.
Prado was the star of the contest, hitting a three-run double in the eighth inning to put the nail in the Cubs’ coffin. Because of that hit, Prado was asked to be on the Marlins post-game interview.

That’s when things got interesting. Prado starts out giving a normal interview until two of his Marlins teammates show up. One of them was Jose Fernandez, who struck out 13 over seven innings during the game. The second was an unidentified teammates in a monkey mask. Both of them proceeded to lather Prado’s head and face with shaving cream.
Aside from the monkey mask, that’s basically to be expected, right? Well, that’s when things got weird. Instead of wiping off all the shaving cream, Prado put his cap and headset back on and proceeded to do the interview. He looked like a mix between classic horror villain Michael Myers and Robin Williams with cake frosting on his face from Mrs. Doubtfire.
Needless to say, he looked pretty terrifying. Prado clearly had the option to wipe off the shaving cream, as a towel was thrown to him at some point, but he just kept on going. We’re not sure what to say, actually. It’s one thing to be committed, it’s another to give young children nightmares.
Good luck sleeping tonight.
