The people behind the Japanese horror film, RINGU (the movie THE RING was based on) are in the middle of a major marketing campaign to promote the franchise’s latest sequel, SADAKO 3D. And some bright bulb in the marketing department decided that one great marketing ploy would be to let the ghost throw out the first pitch at a baseball game.
That’s right! An actress who was hired to portray the ghost walked out onto the field, had a little fun by shaking off a few pitches and going into a full wind up, and then dropped face-down into the grass. And it’s as freakishly funny as it sounds.
Check out the full video below. SADAKO 3D, which takes place thirteen years after the original RINGU, opens in Japanese theaters May 12th.
