YouTube Was Created…

…so that I could watch Hedo Turkoglu spit bars in a Turkish posse cut/cell phone commercial along with someone’s grandmother, three faux-mannequins rocking bridal gowns, a female yuppie, a balding escalator-runner, some mustachioed dude and a tuba trio.

Confused? So was Hedo. Just watch.

And in unrelated news, Bill Simmons has a very good, two-part rundown of the NBA off-season (Part 1 and Part 2) set to the backdrop of quotes from Almost Famous, which is inexplicably his favorite movie of the 2000s. As I put it on Eight Points, Nine Seconds:

Bill Simmons’ favorite movie of the 2000s is inexplicably Almost Famous. I mean, it’s a good flick and all, but better than City of God, Anchorman, Adaptation., There Will Be Blood, X2, Children of Men, No Country for Old Men, Snatch, Old School, Ocean’s Eleven, The Assassination of Jesse James, 25th Hour, The Savages, Zoolander, The Wrestler and Thank You For Smoking (among others)? Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, I suppose, but that’s a pretty odd movie to choose as a favorite, especially if you factor in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Dark Knight and Iron Man.

Yes. I just quoted myself.
