The Miami Marlins slugger, who leads MLB this season with 51 homers, stars in a sexy and NSFW (unless you work at a gentlemen’s club) music video from noted twerker-turned-singer Lexy Panterra. The video for “So Good” finds Stanton shirtless in bed, being seduced as the obvious object of Panterra’s affection. This isn’t exactly a position in which we see a lot of baseball players. Could you imagine Mike Trout doing something like this?
Panterra, who has turned her twerking fame into 1.4 million YouTube subscribers and 2.1 million Instagram followers, is seen climbing all over Stanton in the video, which is about the exact opposite of how opposing pitchers feel about Stanton these days. He’s hit 18 homers in August, which tied the all-time MLB record for the month of August.
Some guys have all the luck, huh? Did we mention he’s currently signed to a $325 million contract? Yeah, not a bad life there.
This is certainly a sexier side of Stanton than we’ve ever seen. Though he’s one of baseball’s most prominent sluggers and he plays in one America’s most famous party cities, he’s not one to make the gossip headlines on a monthly basis. But he did celebrate signing his $325 million dollar deal with a $20,000 bottle of champagne, so he’s not exactly a homebody.
He also got tastefully nude for ESPN’s “Body Issue” in 2013. So Stanton has no problem showing off that home-run crushing body of this. However, he doesn’t look particularly comfortable in his role as music-video boy toy.
He mostly looks like a guy getting a lapdance in a strip club who knows the bouncer will kick him out if he touches the dancer. Basically, he looks kinda stiff — no, not like that.
