A video of Edwin Diaz entering from the bullpen to close out another Mets win, with the sound of “Narco” by Blasterjaxx & Timmy Trumpet playing in the background, has now been viewed over eight million times since Aug. 7.
There’s no telling how many of those views came from Diaz himself.
“It’s fun watching that video,” Diaz said on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk. “I think I watch that video every single day.
“People like it so I like it a lot. When I’m home with my wife and my sons, I watch those videos.”
People certainly enjoy it, as it has become one of the most recognizable closer songs for arguably the most dominant closer in the game this season in Diaz, who has those trumpets becoming as synonymous with his name as Mariano Rivera and Metallica’s Enter Sandman.
As for the creators of the song, Diaz can only say “thank you.”
“They made a great song,” Diaz said. “I had that song in Seattle in 2018. When I got here I changed it, and my wife told me in the 2020 season, ‘Hey, you should put that song again.’ so I put it back, and everybody loved it here.”
