Gotta give it up to Inside The NBA. Simply put, one of my favorite shows and I’m sad when I miss one. I’m especially happy I didn’t miss tonight’s as the crew put together the instantly catchy new song “Let’s Get Physical” by Charles Barkley.
The backstory: all playoffs long, Inside found some old footage of the first time Ernie Johnson and Barkley interacted on live TV. EJ talked to an oddly shy, soft-spoken Chuck in 1992 when he was a special guest at halftime. The video naturally aged wonderfully and is the newest running joke against Barkley. And that was before the Inside the NBA crew autotuned it and turned it into a remix above. Hah! Enjoy.
Oh yeah, Chris Tucker weighs in on the Jay Z / Solange fight also. He does his impressions of Solange and Jay’s fighting styles and reveals what Beyonce was thinking during all this. A different, and equally hilarious take on the situation to SNL’s spoof from over the weekend.
Even better: The Lonely Island debuted a new song and SNL Digital Short “When Will The Bass Drop” featuring Lil Jon. As you may suspect from the title, it’s Samberg & Co’s take on the EDM concert-going experience. And yes, it exaggerates all the stereotypes for even more laughs below.
