Some three years after we last saw him at the MLB level, Yasiel Puig still has not changed one bit.

The former All-Star outfielder Puig went viral this week for a funny mishap that he got himself into during a game this week. Puig, who is now playing in Korea for the Kiwoom Heroes of the KBO League, skyrocketed a ball to deep left that he thought was a home run. Unfortunately for Puig, he spent some time admiring his work … only for the ball to hit the outfield wall instead. Puig was then forced to kick it into high gear and tripped like one of The Three Stooges as he rounded first base. He was ultimately thrown out at second by a good few feet (with an Olympic-worthy belly flop as well).

Check out the video (which might be best enjoyed with “Yakety Sax” playing in the background).

Puig, now 31, played seven MLB seasons and was known for these kinds of antics. There were plenty of classic examples of Puig’s grand showboating backfiring on him just as stupendously.

On the bright side, it is definitely not all bad for Puig right now. Self-induced bloopers or not, he is still making a good amount of money to play in Korea.
