Video: Munenori Kawasaki Models Jake Arrieta ‘Beard Beanie'

The beanie will be given away by the Iowa Cubs on the 25th

Munenori Kawasaki has endeared himself to Chicago Cubs fans with his engaging personality and his affinity for the movie “Armageddon,” and a new outtakes video of the infielder will do nothing to diminish his popularity.

Currently with the Cubs’ minor-league affiliate in Des Moines, Kawasaki participated in the team’s promotional video for a Jake Arrieta beard beanie that the club will be giving away over the weekend.

The team released a blooper reel of sorts as Kawasaki tries on the beanie, and the results are predictably awesome:

Between this video and the Aerosmith rendition while the Cubs were in Mesa, it’s not difficult to see why fans have fallen in love with Kawasaki. During his brief call-up earlier this season, fans at Wrigley Field gave him a standing ovation and chanted his name when he came up to bat for the team’s home opener.
