Please Clap for This Teen Getting Slo-mo Nailed in the Head With a Basketball

By

Say what you will about kids these days, but the fact that teens are constantly plugged into cell phones is the best thing that has happened to viral internet content since dental anesthesia.

Today, I present Cullen Melton, a teenager whose failed attempts to shoot a basketball have gone viral, thanks to a Twitter video shared by his friend Joel Dillis. Dillis first posted the video at the end of April, but it has resurfaced again online this week to the tune of 72,000 retweets (and counting.)

Melton might not have sunk the shot, but Dillis at least scores a few bonus points for adding the dramatic slow-motion effect. That’s friendship right there.
