By now, you’ve either heard about Donald Sterling’s unbelievably racist phone conversation and subsequent lifetime ban from the NBA or you just heard about it for the first time reading this sentence. I just listened to the tape again and there are really no words to describe how insane this situation is.
There has been no shortage of reactions to the incident — with a number of people chiming in on social media and at least one person comparing NBA commissioner Adam Silver to different things – but Adult Swim’s take on the situation might be the funniest thing to come out of this absurd situation.
The clip takes excerpts from the phone call and splices them seamlessly into a scene from “Seinfeld” in one of the more well done mashups I’ve ever seen.
Instead of being chastised by George Steinbrenner, George Costanza is subjected to the wrath of the LA Clippers owner. It’s hilarious on its own, but it’s the subtle touches, like the portrait of J.J. Reddick hanging on the wall, that really did it for me.
Good luck topping this, everyone else.
