Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu in ramen ad with fake Clayton Kershaw
Los Angeles Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu is the star of a ramen commercial in his native South Korea, which shows the portly pitcher diving into a steaming pot of noodles while wearing a Dodgers-style jersey. He's even cheered on by a teammate who looks very similar to ace Clayton Kershaw.
It seems that the Ottogi Noodle corporation decided to sidestep going for the two-time Cy Young Award winner, and instead just put a fake beard on an actor who appears in the bullpen with Ryu.
The Dodgers were eliminated from playoffs on Tuesday night by the St. Louis Cardinals, after losing 3-2 with Clayton Kershaw on the mound.
