Everything about this video is perfect. The juxtaposition of R.Kelly’s ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ sending a message of hope while white dudes (and random white chick) repeatedly try and fail at dunking a basketball is perfect.
If I were to wake up 10,000 years from now to find that Google no longer exists, and future historians ask me what once made companies like YouTube so successful, this is the video I’d show them. Just three glorious minutes of dudes making complete asses out of themselves.
And I’ve got nothing but respect for these guys all putting themselves out there in hopes of winning a trophy for dunking with the assist of a trampoline. If you suck ass at dunking you might as well embrace that shortcoming and dress up in your favorite Jumpman 23 gear like the dude around the 1:10 mark.
Everyone featured in this clip should hold their heads high. What they lack in natural athletic ability they make up for by bringing laughter and joy to millions of people on the Internet.
