Barry Bonds turned what looked to be a cringeworthy prank into a heartwarming message to his godfather, Willie Mays.

Yes, he snapped a selfie with a sleeping Mays. Then he posted it to Instagram for 17,300 of his closest friends.

Call it what you might, but given the caption, we're pretty sure Bonds really just thought he was capitalizing on an opportune time to show his appreciation.

Here's what he wrote:

Yes he sleep. #SayHey Willie Mays and yes I sleep next to him. I am so proud to have the best God Father in the world. 😀❤️⚾️ I Love you and everything that you have done for me and my family Willie.

Endearing, right?
