Sad Jack White Continues To Haunt, Amuse

Jack White has really been delivering on the Tim Burton Baseball Game dreams we never knew we had. Following his appearance at Wrigley Field earlier this week, where he scowled through a Cubs win, White turned up to throw the first pitch at a Detroit Tigers game yesterday—his hometown team. Every boy's dream! Right? Jack? Are you okay?

Maybe he was pitching to an evil right winger who doesn't share his political ideology? Nope, no, he was pitching to jolly ol' Saint Nick.

Some say the scene was recreated later in order to get the below footage, which shows a Happy Jack, in an effort to put a stop to this goddamn meme once and for all.
