VIDEO: Marlins Home Run Feature Lives!

Over the past few months, baseball fans have had an ongoing fixation with the Marlins home run feature in their new ballpark. First, there were the conceptual drawings about the feature, which made it look like some giant, flamboyant monstrosity. Next came the videos, where people tried taking the still-life pictures and imagining what the feature would look like in action. And finally, we've had ongoing updates about the feature's construction, with everyone craning for their first look at this remarkable piece of art.

We're a week and a half away from Opening Day, and it looks like the home run feature is finally fully operational. The first video of it in action has been posted on YouTube, and it's everything you could have asked for and more.

The lack of surrounding makes the feature look kinda lame in this context, but can't you just imagine this thing lightning up while the stadium is awash in music and cheering? It's going to be epic.

Everyone loved to hate on this feature over the off season, but now that it's out there, it seems like everyone is coming around and embracing it for the ridiculousness that it is. How can you possibly go wrong with something this over the top?
