Wizards F Jan Vesely makes video inspired by Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ (video)


In case you are unfamiliar with Jan Vesely — as I must admit I pretty much was until now — he is a Czech-born power forward who has spent the last two seasons coming off the bench for the Washington Wizards after the team drafted him with the sixth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

After that, there really isn’t much to add, nor is there much more I would be able to tell you, about Vesely. Except for one thing: He seems kinda weird. Or he is an artistic genius. Or both.

That is the only conclusion that can be arrived at after viewing his video, featuring the song “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys and filmed in the style of the Spike Jonze-directed classic music video for the same tune.

The intro of the video features the text: “Recently a criminal organtiztion [sic] known only as  ‘The Czechlist’ surfaced in the U.S. The syndicate operates with one sole purpose. To illegally distribute the identity of Washington Wizards power forward Jan Vesely. They chose the wrong Czech…”

The video was posted on Tuesday to which was posted to Vesely’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. I could try to explain what is going on in the video but that may just spoil the surrealistic nature of it all.

Down the rabbit hole we go.

Wow. Just wow. Who says NBA players have a bunch of free time during the offseason?
