In case you’re not one of the 4 million plus people who already saw this clip of a guy in a Spider-Man costume schooling people in pick up basketball, you’re missing some pretty impressive superhero work.
The video blew up over the weekend, and what makes it stand out for me is when you take the group of people who are “awesome at pickup basketball” and combine them with the group who “own their own Spider-Man costumes,” you don’t generally get a lot of overlap. The majority of folks who own Spider-Man costumes fall more into the category of this guy at Comic-Con, who manages to smash his nose into an interviewer’s microphone moments after admitting his sister is hot.
But this Spidey? This guy’s got some skills. By the way, if you look closely at this video, while Spider-Man is using his great power to goof off on the basketball court, you can see a group of thugs in the background brutally murdering his Uncle Ben. Seriously, next time, try using your powers for good instead of for basketball.
