DeAndre Jordan’s ‘Dunk Face’, now in commemorative t-shirt form (photo)
On Sunday, Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan delivered a ferocious slam dunk that victimized and posterized Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight on a brilliantly executed alley-oop play. The interwebs nearly suffered a full-scale meltdown as a result of Jordan’s vicious throwdown, and now Under Armour is attempting to capitalize on the hysteria via making a clever t-shirt paying tribute to the phenomenal play available on its website.
Fancy. Its description:
Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan doesn’t just get noticed because he threw down what is being called “the best oop ever”…it’s because he goes all in, every game.
And you, yes, you, can have your very own DeAndre Jordan “Show Me Your Dunk Face” t-shirt for the low, low price of…$27.99? How about “Show Me Your ‘I’m Getting Overcharged’ Face”? Sheesh.
In case you have been living under a rock or suffer from an acute case of YouTubeDunkophobia, the dunk being celebrated:
Perhaps not quite as enthralling but entertaining nonetheless, DeAndre Jordan’s post-slam “Dunk Face” also has attracted its own level of online notoriety. To wit (via SB Nation):
Ha. That’s a look that either says, “Holy crap, did you see what I just did?” or, alternatively, “Ugh, that’s stanky. Seriously, who farted?”
In honor of Jordan’s “Dunk Face,” Under Armour also is holding a contest on Facebook where regular guys and gals like you and me can do our best to imitate the priceless expression. Dubbed the “Under Armour DeAndre Dunk Face Instagram Challenge,” folks can submit their own version of Jordan’s “Dunk Face,” presumably on Instagram.
So have at it, gents and lassies. Let’s see your “Dunk Face.” And please, submissions of “O-Faces” are probably not welcome, so don’t bother.
