Ryu Noodles Around

Hyun-Jin Ryu's now-legendary Ottogi Noodle commercial, featuring "lookalikes" of some of his Dodger teammates, has been making the rounds EVERYWHERE in the Dodger community. It's only fitting we preserve it here at SoSG as well.

The video is hilariously bizarre and deserving of all the attention. In addition to the video, friend-of-SoSG Sarah Wexler uncovered a link to some amazing behind-the-scenes photos of the commercial shoot. These photos reveal that both a Puig lookalike and a Uribe lookalike were hired for the shoot, but not used in the final commercial.
Hopefully, we'll see these two in an extended version soon. Though, there was word on Twitter that Uribe would be flying to Korea to appear in another commercial with his best buddy Ryu. That better not have been a joke.

I feel like this commercial and semi-baseless rumors about front office firings are the two things keeping Dodger fans afloat right now.

I saw a package of these noodles in Little Tokyo at the supermarket a few months ago with Ryu on the package. I can forward the picture to someone.

I especially liked "Clayton's" beard.

They should rename Dodger Stadium. Welcome to Jin Stadium!

I have no idea what the hell they're saying, but I laughed my ass off.

In the next commercial they should go fusion style and cut up some Dodger Dogs into the soup.
