Umpire's strike 3 call 'Whoomp there it is' instagram video goes viral

An instagram video of an umpire's strike three call during a baseball game has gone viral.

Instagram user "markmulder30" posted the video two days ago showing an umpire at what appears to be a little league baseball game leaning back and shouting "Whoomp, there it is!", signifying strike three.

The exclamation is a reference of the popular one-hit-wonder rap song from the group Tag Team.

The humorous strike call is reminiscent of a funny moment from the movie The Naked Gun, where Leslie Nielsen's character Frank Drebin quickly learns to enjoy the crowd's response to his strike calls.
