Videobombing of Jeremy Hefner Shows New York Mets Lead Majors in One Category

The New York Mets might not be having the season they'd hoped for, but Jeremy Hefner's interview on Tuesday night was one of the bright spots for the team.

The Mets had a bit of fun with the second-year pitcher, putting on arguably the best videobombing display of our generation.

Future videobombers: Take note of what the Mets did here.

The team might be 10 games under .500 and 12 games back in the NL East, but it sure is having fun with its pregame interviews.

Our friends over at Deadspin took notice of the impressive display of creativity and silliness as well.

Hefner might have been pranked a bit, but even he can't complain about these videobombs.

The team doesn't lead in runs scored or ERA, but I think we can all agree that the Mets are the best team in all of sports when it comes to videobombs.

Even the most anguished Mets fans had to chuckle at this one.


The photobombing and mischief behind @jeremy_hefner53 is fabulous.

Life's about enjoying the little things, and the Mets sure found a way to have fun during a standard pregame interview.

Hefner wasn't even the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game, as he had just pitched two days before (giving up one earned run on two hits in seven innings pitched). Yet he still found a way to make headlines.

The Mets must have enjoyed their 16-inning marathon the night before: They won 4-3 in the wee hours of the morning and then looked well rested and playful the next day.

We can all learn a thing or two about videobombs from these Mets.
