If there was ever the perfect advertisement for why the NBA and NFL need to end their respective lockouts, it would be this intentionally-so-bad-it’s-funny video from Wednesday’s nights ESPYs featuring Blake Griffin and a supporting cast of athletes including Kevin Love, Tyson Chandler, Adrian Peterson, and

Look, we’re all about Blake Griffin’s ascendancy to replace Peyton Manning as the funniest corporate spokesperson in the country, and we think this video is another step in that quest. But, if Griffin and his supporting cast have nothing better to do than shoot wry vids like this during the lockout, then maybe the respective sides should get together and figure out a way to solve their differences.
Then again, making comedic videos like a goofy kid is definitely better than the alternative, which would be spending his time off like Pacman Jones.
