A Coco Crisp bobblehead will be given out by the Oakland A’s on June 29, presumably during Coco Crisp Bobblehead Night, because that makes the most sense. But this particular bobblehead is far superior in one particular way when compared to the traditional giveaway bobblehead.
The Coco Crisp bobblehead in question does the “Bernie Lean,” a dance that became a phenomenon among A’s players and the team’s fans during Oakland’s remarkable postseason run last fall.
Inspired by the 1993 cinema classic, Weekend At Bernie’s II, the “Bernie Lean” and the song Moving Like Berney by Infinity SoAwesome (ISA), the “Bernie Lean” was introduced to Crisp by pitcher Joey Blevins. And the rest, as they say, is history.
The A’s revealed the first look at the Coco Crisp bobblehead doing the “Bernie Lean” via its official Twitter account on Monday:
