i heard about this dunk for about 18 hours before finally watching it. twitter made it sound too good to be true, and i’ve been let down enough times to know i need to guard my heart.
then i watched it and
. . . oh.
my sweet wife, watching through droopy eye lids on the sofa as i help up my laptop, giddy and bright eyed, simply said,
‘he could have been killed’
before getting me to watch this key and peele sketch.

so, what have we learned?
watch the dunk as soon as it happens. heaping servings of yams are served for a reason. let us pile them high on our plates and watch that video at least six more times.
