Watch: ‘Transfer’ Kris Bryant Pranks Community College Team In Red Bull Ad

(CBS) In a new ad spot for Red Bull, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and reigning NL Rookie of the Year acts as a transfer student named Roy from Europe who’s joining the Mesa Community College baseball team midseason — with a reputation to precede him.

Mesa’s coach told his players that the transfer was a “big donkey” with “crazy power” and thus some would lose playing time. Bryant then shows up and scurries to the plate to take batting practice, to everyone’s amazement.

“You said a kid, not a man,” one player chimes at his coach.

It didn’t take Bryant too long to be recognized in the ad. Watch it above.
