When it comes to the illustrious world of bobble-headed sports mascots, your first question is probably "What's the odor situation in there?" But your second question would have to be "Exactly what kind of person would willingly put on a ridiculous costume and act a fool in front of thousands of people on a regular basis?" A HERO, that's who.
See, whether their behavior is misguidedly bizarre or straight-up awesome, you can't deny these guys are integral to their respective fan bases. If your team's doing well, your mascot is nothing less than a VIP. But if they’re losing…well, who among us hasn't berated a full-grown teddy bear at a live sporting event? It's basically a rite of passage for any dedicated sports fan. But with all the awkward backflips and halfhearted Macarena moves, it's easy to forget that there are real human beings inside those colorful, furry suits. Fortunately, Hulu's new original series Behind the Mask finally shines a light on these tragically underrepresented, anonymous luminaries.
