A halfcourt shot for $500,000 (or not)

Posted on: March 5, 2009 4:08 pm
 

I'm not into posting things that take more than a couple of minutes to watch.

But this is pretty good.

So I'm posting it.

First, the backstory: These two dudes at CollegeHumor.com have pulled off some hilarious pranks on each other, most recently one that involved a marriage proposal at Yankee Stadium . Classic. So now we're up to what they're calling Prank War 7, and it involves a Maryland basketball game, which means I can justify putting it in this college basketball blog.

Anyway, the gist of this is that one dude thinks he's shooting a halfcourt shot for $500,000.

Of course, it's not really as it seems.

But it's funny.

And well worth seven minutes.

So click this link and enjoy.

Amir overacts a little too much for me. Still more enjoyable than believable, though. These guys are funny, my friend has an uncomfortably large man crush on Amir.

The best part of this video is when the announcer calls his seat number and he wins, he stands up, then the announcer promptly tells him to stay in his seat.

Awesome prank!! This reminds me of an actual event of a co-worker who actually got called out of the crowd to shoot a half court shot at a Kansas State basketball game to shoot for, I believe a new car. This was back around 1985.  He had so many seconds to make it. He shot and made it. The contest officials decided however that the time buzzer had gone off while the ball was in the air...so even though he had shot it before the buzzer went off, his shot for the contest was null and void due to time expiration. Not a happy student. This prank war is great though.

Wait, a Gators fan making a crack about the NIT?  Not so fast there, pal.

Him running around the court after he "made" the shot was probably the funniest part.

Well, that was a better shot than anything Sean Mosley has thrown up this season.  (Ba-dum-cha!)

Wow this is hilarious!!  Maryland needs something to laugh about after they couldn't finish a strong run at the end of the year.  This will provide some comic relief on their way to the most dreaded NIT.

Go to the college humor website and type in prank war in the search field... there's 7 vidoes total and all are hilarious.  Each time they try to top one another.
