Welcoming The Weekend With The Mascot Fight From Sudden Death


Estimated Reading Time: 3 Minutes

You made it! It’s finally the end of another work week. Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is just sitting at home doing nothing. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a “you” problem.

Watch The Video

Ok. You watched the video, right? If you didn’t, sort yourself and do it now. Alright, same page. This scene is one of those things that even the most talented writers couldn’t hope to add to with their commentary so I have zero chance but SEO dictates I do so here it goes. In life, we seldom come across things that are perfect. Life, in itself, is imperfect. Perfection is often desired but rarely achieved. In the video above, perfection is not only achieved but eclipsed. This scene is the One-Above-All of movie scenes. It has no predecessor. It has no follow up. This is what I imagine it would be like to see God.

I won’t bore you with a play by play break down of this particular work of art. If that’s the sort of thing you’re into, check out this pod. More than enough is said there. I will, however, marvel at the fact that this exists. Just think about that for a moment. Presumably responsible adults made this movie. People with husbands and wives and children. People with mortgages and jobs and the right to vote made this. This was written on paper, read in front of countless people and not one objected. Then, a set was designed, props fabricated and fight choreography developed. Still, no one said a thing. Finally, days were spent filming this scene. Days filled with numerous adult human beings working towards one common goal of getting this done. This existing is one of the greatest miracles in the history of the world.

I am no Hollywood insider but I know enough to understand that studios constantly interfere with a films production. The fact that, not only did someone conceive of this in the first place, but that the litany of people who had to sign off on it signed off on it is incalculable.

Have I Gone Too Far?

It may seem like I am making too much of this. I assure you I’m not. One of my favorite things in life is seeing a movie or show or idea that is so out there it has no business existing but yet, it does. I love a giant swing whether you connect or not. It feels like creatives with a specific vision are often derailed by those with the money. When someone is allowed to execute said vision, no matter how insane or nonsensical it may be, well, that brings me more joy than I can properly articulate.

Also, see the below gif because while it may not make any sense it is the culmination of my vision and that’s all that matters.

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
