The Laptop Clench: New Olympic Sport?

Posted on

Probably not, since “fancy video editing” is typically not an Olympic-level category (except, of course, at EW.com). The following viral headscratcher of a guy catching hurled laptops in his crack seems to employ the same “backwards” technology as Guy Catches Glasses With Face and other “classics.” I don’t really care if it’s fake — I’m digging the background beat, faux-ga posing, and heightened suspension of disbelief achieved via spandex. Plus, the exercise vaguely reminds me of the Pitch-N-Catch Velcro Game, which I’d like to be playing on the beach right now, in a style that does not involve my ass. Be honest: Is this the dumbest thing you’ve seen all week? Think about it.
