Videobombing is most certainly ‘in’ right now. The great part about videobombing is that there are so many options for the bomber. But one thing that hasn’t been done to date? Rubik’s Cube videobombing. Bill Walton and Dave Pasch felt the wrath of this tactic on a recent ESPN college basketball broadcast:
“Throw it down, big fella!”
For those that don’t know (and I didn’t until five minutes ago), Rubik’s Cubes were invented back in 1974 by a Hungarian professor named Erno Rubik. They were originally called ‘Magic Cubes’. As of 2009, there have been 350 million cubes sold worldwide. As you can see, they’re still going strong today.
So will this trend of ‘smart’ videobombing catch on? It’s doubtful. The most effective bombs usually come in the form of someone making a weird face or by someone who draws lots of attention to the background of the video by performing crazy actions. All you have to do is a search for Miami Heat videobombs to see how it’s done.
It’s kind of cool that the Heat always do videobombs. They embody the spirit of today’s generation by doing so. It’s fine to have fun along the way during an NBA season, as long as you get the job done in June. Joking around and going viral is the norm these days. The Heat are leading the way, but as soon as they start to lose, people will ask if they joke around too much.
