Now that football season is officially over, it’s time to turn our full attention to basketball. And there’s no better way to get hyped for basketball than this three-minute, unintentional blooper reel of some kids’ “slam dunk contest” that went hilariously wrong. That it’s set to R. Kelly’s Space Jam ode “I Believe I Can Fly” and captured in agonizing slow-motion video makes it all the more entertaining. 

I respect the dude who wanted to pay homage to Dee Brown’s iconic no-look dunk, but he probably should’ve focused more on hitting the trampoline harder. 

Some stereotypes have unmistakable kernels of truth: These white kids can’t jump. Not even with trampolines.
