Giancarlo Stanton wields Thor’s hammer in new video

Video editing is an incredibly fun way to turn the most basic of videos into something that’s out of this world. Check out this MLB-produced video of Giancarlo Stanton heading into tonight’s Home Run Derby, where he wields Thor’s hammer instead of a bat as he smashes a home run.

LIGHTNING! FIRE! EXPLOSIONS! And let’s just ignore that the video is really three Stanton homers spliced together! But still, it’s an awesome piece of work, and something you really don’t see every day.
