Somebody made a Timberwolves-‘Family Matters’ intro mashup (video)

Nope, I don’t know what the heck is going on here, either. Technically, it’s not so much the Family Matters intro blended with Minnesota Timberwolves players as stars as it is video and photos of T-Wolves players with the Family Matters theme song, “As Days Go By” playing in the background and a quick shot of Steve Urkel playing basketball towards the middle. The video is entitled, Minnesota Timbertrolls: The Series, but the series (according to the graphic at the beginning) is called Minnesota Matters, which makes a lot more sense, but there you go. What does any of this video have to do with trolls?

But at the same time, some of the names the creators of this video have come up with for Wolves players are amusing. Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio’s names remain the same, but others are infused with a bit of artistic license. Among them:

  • Anthony Trolliver (aha, the troll)
  • “B-Easy for Michael Beasley (featuring video when he absolutely kills it during the team’s ‘N Sync sing-a-long)
  • Luke Ridnagüer (what?)
  • “Wild Wild Wes” Johnson
  • José Jordan Barea
  • Darko “Skyhook” Milicic (shoulda been “Skyhook Comes Up Short” but that’s another story)

Weird. Did I happen to mention that the YouTube summary is in Spanish? That may help explain the odd names but who knows? Here’s the summary run through Babelfish:

What would happen if the group of the Timberwolves carried out a teleserie? I leave a small advance you of how he would be ” Things of casa” with Love, Ricky, Tolliver and company.

Well, that certainly clears things up. And now I’ll have that blasted theme song stuck in my head all day. Drat. Nevetheless, a solid video for a rapidly becoming solid team. Well done, Spanish-speaking creator of this video. Salute.
