We see them at sporting event all the time. But who exactly is that person in the mascot costume? That’s what the new documentary series Behind the Mask (available now on Hulu) considers.
Behind the Mask follows the men inside the costumes of four mascots on four different levels — Rooty, a high school mascot who is, well, a tree; Hey Reb, the UNLV mascot; Tux, the mascot for the Wilkes-Barre Penguins, the minor league team for the Pittsburgh Penguins; and Bango, the mascot for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Each has their own reason for why they put on the suit and their own challenges on and off the field, court, and ice. It’s been an eye-opening experience to see what they go through to support their teams.
So, if you sitting at your computer and you’re looking for something to watch, swing by Hulu and check out some episodes of Behind the Mask.
