Metta World Peace Video: Watch Insane Video for Mental Health Awareness

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterMay 29, 2012

Look, it's a bird. No, it's a plane. Actually, I have no freaking clue what the hell that is. Someone please explain it to me. 

Somehow, someway, the LA Lakers' Metta World Peace managed to film one of the most bizarre nightmares I have ever had. 

The only sense I can make of this video is that it's a PSA for mental health. The end of the video encourages people with mental health issues to visit

Standing ovation for Metta Man. 

This is the perfect way to get millions of people to view a PSA and get them to stick around until the end to get the information. 

I was captivated, scared, flummoxed and bewildered, all within the span of a couple minutes. However, I have more questions than answers. 

Do you have to be crazy to understand this video? Or is the hope to make the world far more insane to level the playing field? 

MWP is seen with a curling stone and skateboard, and then he flies through the city until...I really can't describe any of it with justice. 

I think it's more about making a super outrageous video that will be memorable and draw attention to a great cause. 

Yes, that has to be it. 

I would love to have seen the pitch meeting for this video. 

MWP: I want to make a commercial for mental health awareness. 

Producer: Why are you wearing shorts one size too small?

MWP: I say we make it the craziest thing ever put on camera. 

Producer: Why do you have a puppet on your hand?

Kudos to World Peace, who continues to own up to draw attention to a great cause. Mental health is a serious concern, but this video is pure nonsense. 

However, it somehow makes it perfect. 


Follow me on Twitter for pure nonsense.
