I ask you: what on earth is better than a good, old-fashioned mascot fight? Just two anthropomorphic creatures throwing down in front of a screaming crowd. Nothin’ beats it.
This time, it happened at a basketball game between Louisville Male and duPont Manual in the basketball-crazed state of Kentucky. And it was every bit as awesome as
you’d expect you damn well know it would be. There’s really not much else to say about this video except that you need to stop everything you’re doing, crank your laptop’s volume and hit play:
Oh man. That’s just the best. That ram and elephant (?) really deliver. They’re throwing bombs — and it looks like the Ram even gets in a dropkick! And, somehow, they manage to keep their over-sized heads on! And the crowd, of course, is just going insane. It doesn’t get any better than this.
I love the voice at the end, futilely imploring everybody to calm down. Yeah right, voice. This is a mascot fight. The people there in person will be so amped over what they just saw they won’t sleep for days.
After the game, several more fights broke out outside the gym, with several students getting arrested and suspended. No word on whether any of the students were dressed as jungle animals.
