The Oakland A's are going to release a bobblehead that will no doubt be a fan favorite. For our enjoyment, they tweeted out a hilarious video of Coco Crisp doing the lean.
OK, so it's merely a bobblehead in the likeness of the A's outfielder. Still you can now salivate over getting your hands on this fine piece of comedic paraphernalia.
Thanks to this tweet from the A's.

BREAKING: Your first glimpse of the @coco_crisp Lean Bobblehead on June 29 http://t.co/R9fjPNBd2/4/2013, 10:39:49 PM
Something tells me it will be a packed house the night these beauties are given away.
According to their website, the A's will be giving these out on Saturday, June 29, when Oakland welcomes the St. Louis Cardinals. Alas, only the first 10,000 fans will get one.
But when those inevitably run out, you can always try for the Coco Crisp cereal bowl on June 2, which just sounds damn awesome. Imagine eating Cocoa Krispies out of a Coco Crisp cereal bowl.
For those uninitiated, the lean was adopted as something of a rallying move by the team in 2012 when the team noticed ISA's song "Moving Like Bernie."
That's all the impetus they needed to begin moving like Bernie, the very dead character from Weekend at Bernie's II.
Weekend at Bernie's II continues to be one of the most underrated films of any era. I dare you to come up with a movie that asks the hard questions with riveting philosophical quandaries. Such as, can Voodoo really get Bernie Lomax to dance his way into a beach-bound hookup?
Now, I really need to figure out how to get this Coco Crisp cereal bowl.
