Picture Arian Foster rolling.
To be clear, picture him rolling on an expensive electronic scooter and blowing up your interview.
Foster recently managed a subtle and spectacular videobombing of teammate Ed Reed, who was busy fielding questions from the media and failed to notice the Houston Texans running back rolling around behind him on a Segway.
The drive-by videobombing was spotted by Nate Scott of For The Win, and it’s as nonchalant as it is amazing. The videobomb was crafted into a GIF by the official @HoustonTexans Twitter account, which hashtagged the move as “#Fostering” and “#SegwayLife.”
Foster glided past Reed, pivoted and then leaned in behind the oblivious Texans safety. The Texans running back then stared down the back of Reed’s head before rolling out of the frame. It was a Grade-A, premium videobombing, especially when you consider that it was all done on the fly.
Note: It’s best if you watch this GIF while listening to “Smooth Criminal” by Michael Jackson. It’s also best if you imagine Foster moonwalking while executing the videobomb.
Why is this great? Well, you’ve got an athlete on a Segway, so that’s money in the bank. Furthermore, Reed has no idea it’s happening, and there’s a distinct possibility he still has no idea it happened.
With that being said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
While the former Baltimore Ravens star is only in his first season with the Texans, he’s probably familiar with Foster’s love of Segways. In December 2012, Foster bought a fleet of the personal transports for his offensive line as a show of appreciation.
Some Texans fans might not want to see this kind of joking around in the locker room—but if you’re a football fan with zero interest in burning Matt Schaub’s jersey, turn on the MJ and enjoy this moment.
