In Which Rickey Attempts to go Viral and Exposes Himself to Multiple Lawsuits

We give this post a shelf life of roughly 45 minutes before SNY, MLB, Paramount Pictures, the Raymond Scott Quintet, and anyone with a decent sense of humor shut it down for good. But until then, enjoy the frivolity! Below is a YouTube video that Rickey spent countless hours crafting. Because what do you do when everyone who reads your blog tells you that you should write a book? You stop writing your blog altogether and commence work on shitty YouTube videos! Brilliant!

Here's the premise behind the video (which becomes less humorous with each passing sentence Rickey devotes to explaining it): every Mets game, there is a "Play of the Game" which SNY announces. A while back, Rickey's buddy Adam, no stranger to viral videos, said something along the lines of "hey, what if we worked causality into this? What if we made a spoof of the "Play of the Game" called the "Causal Play of the Game?" Rickey loved the idea. You splice together a video beginning with a dinosaur stomping on a prehistoric fern leaf. Cut to the cliche video montage flash forwarding a few million years. Bam, there's Carlos Beltran getting caught looking to end the Mets 2007 season! Bingo, your Causal Moment of the Game!

Sounds nice, right? Yeah, well, below is that conversation taken to it's tragic and bewildering conclusion. We're sorry. So very sorry. Rest assured that the assets are now in place and the next installment will be better.



"I like Ike," get it? Ike Davis? Hello? Anyone? ...Bueller? Ahhhh, you're all humorless philistines. Pardon Rickey while he goes back to enjoying his first place Mets.

I normally "get" things. I'm lost on this one. Sorry. Is there a punch-line I'm missing?

Is it that it's ironically funny, given that the 4th Indiana Jones installment in and of itself was a massive joke?

Smitty, you have no sense of humor. That was absolutely hysterical and I hate baseball.

Smitty's right to be confused. It's not well explained, but the gist of it is the connection between Indy saying "I like Ike," then flash forward to rookie Mets player Ike Davis performing phenomenally.

Smitty, you have no sense of humor.

It's actually you, Bob, who lack the sense of humor. I was playing off of Rickey's comment that we would indeed be confused by it.

That's good, becuase I was fucking with you. I actually didn't get it at all.

Bob said...

The Tiger Woods one was pretty funny though.

Rickey Henderson said...

Rickey hates you both.

At least I don't live on a flaccid pennisula.
