Klay Thompson Sipped A 'Coors Light' While Talking To A Reporter And I Can't Stop, Won't Stop Cringing
Hey Klay, first beer bro? Really toughening up that image of yours, one overacted slug from a bottle of alcoholic piss water at a time. I don't care that an NBA player chose to engage in a little post-game nightcap mid-interview, even if was inarguably forced considering the subject of said interview. I don't even want to criticize the person in question for their choice of adult beverage because that would be just as douchey as the way that person reacted to taking a sip from it. What I will say is that I was temporarily paralyzed by second hand embarrassment when Klay Thompson let out an "ahhhh!" so unnecessary that even 'Coors Light' themselves would yell "CUT!" during the filming of their commercial. I wouldn't even be surprised if they tried to charge him for that product placement. Seriously, the only 'Silver Bullet' I want after listening to that cringeworthy audible aftermath is one right between the eyes on behalf of the person that just gave us all a haunting flashback to our early high school years.
There will be some overly sensitive parents that say Klay Thompson is a role model that shouldn't be endorsing substance abuse, but trust me when I say that what I just witnessed was the furthest thing from an endorsement. There are freshman frat brothers across the nation that just watched that Instagram video and thought - if only for a second - about taking a night off because the oft-forgotten member of the 'Splash Brothers' just unintentionally pulled the curtain back and showed them that drinking doesn't inherently make you awesome. Remember those old "tobacco is whacko when you're a teen" ads where they used to make to cigarette smokers look like meth addicts for dramatic effect? Klay Thompson's "too cool for school" act while wearing a flannel buttoned up to his Adam's apple just did a similar disservice to drinkers that aren't insufferable assholes that need to remind those around them that they totally drink...bro.
