A hilarious parody of Houston Rockets player James Harden, viewed 1.5 million times of Facebook, takes aim at his signature step-back-and-shoot style as well as his controversial cooking dance.
In the viral vide,o comedian BdotAdot5 takes Harden’s step back strategy to new levels, moving several steps way back from his opponent before launching the ball. In another shot, he even dances away from his baffled challenger.
BdotAdot5 caricatures the bearded shooting guard’s defensive moves, laying out his rival with exaggerated twists and turns.
At one point he even locks arms with his opponent and sings “We’re off to see the Wizard.”
The most laugh-out-loud moment is when BdotAdot5 does a very literal take on Harden’s celebratory cooking dance. After firing a shot, the comedian appears on the court in a chef’s apron stirring a spatula in a frying pan. He even flips an imaginary pancake.
Those who believe Harden copied the dance from California rapper Lil B will really get a kick out of that.
BdotAdot5’s video is all over the internet. Entourage actor Jerry Ferrara even asked if he could appear in one of the NBA impersonator’s videos.
The comedian has also done videos impersonating Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies and Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs.
