Brewers TV gave KBO star Eric Thames' first MLB homer a Korean call to ease the transition

The Brewers' 6-1 win over the Rockies on Wednesday night was highlighted by something MLB hasn't seen since 2012: a home run by Eric Thames.

Milwaukee signed the slugger in the offseason after a very prodigious run in the KBO that found Thames, now 30, was something of a hero for the NC Dinos. He clubbed 37 homers and slashed .343/.422/.688 in his first season there, while inspiring many animated home run calls in the Korean broadcast booth. 

Thames was quick to pick up right where he left off after connecting on this pitch from Tyler Chatwood and sending it deep to right-center field:

Considering Thames spent a significant period of time in Korea, swatting dingers left and right, the Brewers' broadcast crew decided it'd be fun to give Wednesday's homer the Korean call treatment -- that is, overlaying one of his KBO homers' audio on top of the video from Wednesday.
