This has truly been “one of those days” for more reasons than I could possibly explain.
This is also the kind of day when I am eternally grateful to have this blog to blow off some steam and forget about work and other BS for a few minutes while I post.
And this is definitely the kind of day when I feel an unyielding sense of appreciation for sports fans with a great sense of humor who produce videos that are laugh-out-loud funny.
Ladies and gentleman of the Midwest, I have a few of those videos for your viewing pleasure here today.
The referral credit goes to the sublime Hot Clicks blog by Jimmy Traina which is easily in the first-thing-in-the-morning rotation triumverate with The Big Lead and Deadspin. Traina never disappoints and always has incredible links. Today, he directs readers towards some hilarious spoofs of the ubiquitous NBA Playoff commercials with the dramatic music and the question “Where will amazing happen this year?”
I’ll tell you where…on the basketball court and on YouTube.
So here they are, the three funniest NBA Playoffs “Where Will Amazing Happen This Year” Spoof videos that I’ve found so far. Please, if you have found any others, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the link and I’ll update this post.
Let’s start it off with my favorite one, featuring a player near and dear to all of our Midwestern hearts: Jeff Foster of the Indiana Pacers.

Thank you to whoever made these videos. I needed that laugh.
And finally, one more video found on Hot Clicks. This one is from some students at Davidson University and features a cameo appearance from Stephen Curry. If you are a college graduate, there is no way you can watch this video and not miss college.
