Orioles create “Hakuna Machado” campaign for Manny Machado

Baltimore Orioles third baseman has taken the Charm City by storm and solidified his position as one of the most promising young players in baseball today. So whenever you have a commodity like that, you need to cash in, right?

The Orioles have released this "Hakuna Machado" video, set to the tune of the song "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King. Apparently, Hakuna Machado means no errors at third whenever he plays.

It's a pretty clever video, only bolstered by the various Orioles players and fans chiming in by saying "Hakuna Machado", including a hilarious cameo from off-key Baltimore reliever Tommy Hunter and Machado himself holding a picture of him as a lion. Machado is the second young player to get a Lion King nickname, following Andrelton Simmons of the Braves, known as Simba by Braves fans.
