Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now.
The folks at Screen Junkies have unleashed the latest instalment in their popular Honest Trailers series, and this one is a hilarious takedown of everybody’s favourite Nike commercial, Space Jam.
Dubbing the film “the Citizen Kane of live-action animated hybrid basketball movies”, the clip’s most brutal shots are directed at the film’s star, Michael Jordan.
“Cringe as your childhood hero shows off the limitations of his non-basketball skills,” the narrator says, “like acting, coaching, being a good teammate, being a good friend, wearing appropriate-sized khakis, and being a role model. Yikes. Unless you’re dunking on somebody, don’t be like Mike, kids.”
Say what you will, Screen Junkies, but Space Jam will always be a timeless classic to us.
Wave your hands in the air if you feel fine, we’re gonna take it into overtime…
