Pelicans bring back nightmare King Cake Baby

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We obviously love mascots here at the All Ball blog, but I’m not sure the Pelicans’ King Cake Baby qualifies as a mascot. I mean, it’s obviously inhuman and constructed of non-organic matter, which would seem to mark it as a mascot. But at the same time, the Pelicans have a Pelican as their mascot, so I guess the King Cake Baby is just some kind of secondary, seasonal thing they bring out for a few weeks year during Mardi Gras, when people bake miniature plastic babies into cakes as a means of finding good luck.

Whatever the Pelicans’ gigantic King Cake Baby mascot thingy is, it is undeniably creepy and terrifying to see a huge, wide-eyed, wild-eyed zombie baby walking around, particularly in your office. There’s one scene in this video where an unsuspecting gentleman exits the office kitchenette and is scared by King Cake Baby, and I think that right there would have been it for me. Do you, King Cake Baby mascot. Just stay away from me, King Cake Baby.
