Singer Carly Rae Jepsen may have thrown the worst celebrity first pitch in baseball history Sunday night at a Tampa Bay Rays home game. Her wind up and release somehow failed and she ended up flinging the ball really hard into the ground. It was hilarious and awkward, and the video has -- predictably -- gone viral as a result.
Some celebrities would be indignant and defensive or even angry, but Jepsen played it off adorably. First she buried her face in her hands and then she laughed and laughed.
Later, she even joked about herself. I'd say Jepsen is the very definition of a good sport. See below:
After the mishap, Jepsen took to Instagram to laugh at herself with before and after shots. She says:
A before and after. Me taking the mound. Me knocking the camera out of the photographers hands with the baseball. And me getting a sympathy hug from the catcher. Omg
The whole thing makes me like her even more than I already did. Sometimes when celebs do dumb things, they act too cool for school and like they are somehow above it all. She could have said how dumb baseball is and how she didn't practice enough. She could have been defensive and said she throws FINE normally.
Instead, she just laughed as the video went viral. Whatever! It's cool. Of course, if she were a man, she probably would have felt differently.
Did you laugh at the video?
