Remember the glory days of 90s basketball, when Michael Jordan was stretch-dunking over Monstars, Larry Johnson as a basketball-playing granny was showing up to help Urkel on “Family Matters” and the true mark of sports celebrity was that you had animated friends or a weird alter ego or a living toy familiar? It’s one of the only things we remember about Penny Hardaway, who tragically passed away sometime in 1996 (if I’m remembering correctly).
Anyway, hot off the never-ending presses of Funny Or Die comes this clip of Blake Griffin trying to film a commercial and being terrorized by a clandestine albino puppet that’s supposed to look like him. Blake won’t win any acting awards, and I’d consider this a step down from leaping a tiger to try to get into a first-person shooter, but there’s an undeniable joy in watching people and things murder Jerry O’Connell. I still haven’t forgiven him for what he did (or didn’t do) to Tara Reid in Body Shots.
Check out the video, and join me in hoping that the NBA lockout goes on forever, and Kevin Durant has to make a career out of wearing a curly gray wig and dunking on the Devil.
