When I first laid eyes on this photo of Bulls rookie Nikola Mirotic last August, the central character from what I consider to be one of the funniest films of all time immediately sprung to mind – Borat.
Sacha Baron Cohen’s Kazakh television personality alter ego Borat Sagdiyev had me in stitches from the moment he appeared on the big screen in his self titled 2006 comedy mockumentary. So when I saw the photo of a suited up Nikola in the same thumbs up pose I had an idea.
Why not put together a video compilation of Nikolaaaaaa highlights, splice in some Borat clips and music from the film. It doesn’t matter that Nikola doesn’t hail from the glorious nation of Kazakhstan or has a penchant for wearing a mankini, all that matters is that you press play and bask in the joy of the bearded rookie’s highlights set to musical genius Korki Buchek’s hit song Bing Bang.
Wawaweewaa it’s a very nice.
This gypsy magic couldn’t have happened without the help of Bulls on Parade video contributor Adam ‘MVP’ Turner who I enlisted to aid me in the production. You might be familiar with Adam if you ever saw this epic video or one of the countless sneaker reviews he’s conducted on his YouTube channel.
