There's an ESPN ESPY Awards 2011 Video making its way across the sports world today, after NBA stars Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and Ron Artest and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson took part in a spectacular spoof ad during the sports awards show on Wednesday night.
In the spot, Griffin and Love have found a way to get regular work during the NBA lockout: start a handyman business.
In the ridiculous fashion typical of pretty much anything host Seth Myers has a hand in, the stars show how they can help normal people reach things on high shelves, smash flies on the high parts of walls and much, much more.
One of the highlights of the spoof is Tyson Chandler's relationship advice, in which he counsels a lovelorn man to hit up all the sexy single ladies on Facebook, to help himself feel better about losing a girl.
I can't explain it, but there's just something about the thought of Tyson Chandler using Facebook for booty calls that is both hilarious and disturbing.
But, the fun isn't over yet; after all, Adrian Peterson can help you with beekeeping! Even if he doesn't know what he's doing, the Vikings star can probably outrun the angry swarms of bees likely to result.
The most terrifying moment of the video is Ron Artest (who I refuse to call Metta World Peace) talking about his love of filing papers and volunteering to file someone's taxes, while his kids are hard at work mangling some poor intern's intricate filing system.
This scene would be downright hilarious, if I was convinced that Artest knew that "Lockout Professionals" wasn't a real company to do odd jobs for people during the lockout, which I'm not.
The thought of Artest doing someones taxes is enough to keep me up at night, much less the person whose taxes he's actually doing.
In the end, though, this was a great spoof on what some of sports' beloved superstars are going to be doing during the upcoming lockout.
Now, all that's left is for someone to remind RonRon that the spoof is just a spoof, not a real business venture.
