Derek Holland, other Giants oiled up to recreate ‘Top Gun' volleyball scene


What do you get when you combine body oil, '80s music and Derek Holland?

Yes, the correct answer is a recreation of the volleyball scene from "Top Gun." Good job.

Also starring in the award-winning performance is Pat Venditte as "Iceman," Will Smith as "Goose" and Sam Dyson as "Maverick." Holland took the "Slider" role -- and he was fantastic. Just take a look:

They really went all out for the performance to promote the Giants' "Top Gun" Day on July 7 at Oracle Park with the perfect sunglasses, flexing and, well ... everything Holland brought to the table.

The promotional event will feature an invite to "The Danger Zone," according to the team's website, where fans can purchase a ticket to the game against the Cardinals. The ticket also is valid for the postgame viewing of the movie that earned multiple awards. Those in attendance also can receive a limited edition "Top Gun"-themed Buster Posey bobblehead.
