In one of the wackiest film tie-ins ever done, the main villain from Ringu/The Ring was invited to throw out the first pitch at a Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters game yesterday to promote the upcoming movie Sadako 3D . Despite all the hair, the actress managed to throw a pretty good pitch… and then hammed it up even further by collapsing. The whole thing seems somewhat ridiculous, but, hey, we’re talking about a team called the Ham Fighters here.

Nicely done, Japan.
