Newcastle Brown Ale’s ‘Really Good Sports Moments’ Is Charming, Weird, Made Of Legos

I don’t have a lot of reasons for this to exist, other than March Madness happening and everybody in the world doing a March Madness thing. Here, I’ll let them explain it:

Our officially unofficial video about a month-that-rhymes-with-starch insanity featuring building block men playing games of round hoops. #NoBollocks

That … didn’t help.

Anyway, this is exactly the way to spend a few minutes on a Friday afternoon. Not-especially-well animated Lego guys recreate classic basketball moments, but not really, because the team names and players are all wrong, like they ran the script through a translator and back again, so Christian Laettner becomes “Christina,” UNC becomes the Carolina Dirty Feet, and so on. The best part is either the scathing condemnation of Chris Webber’s life, which is still totally deserved, or the incredibly morose ending, which fits neither a Lego basketball video nor a beer commercial. So … congratulations on making this awesome thing, weirdos.
