LeBron James’ return to Cleveland gets great ‘Dumb and Dumber’ send-up (video)


Perhaps the single greatest thing to emerge from LeBron James’ triumphant return to the Cleveland Cavaliers — at least in so far as clever send-ups created by Internet wisenheimers are concerned — has got to be the video below which utilizes a classic scene from “Dumb and Dumber” as its jumping-off point.

Of course, the original scene involves Lloyd’s own “triumphant return” to Harry after trading in the dog van for a motorized scooter, a move that should be considered a huge mistake but is greeted with great glee and celebration by Lloyd’s traveling companion.

The facial expressions of LeBron inserted into the scene to cover Lloyd’s face truly take the edited scene from simply funny to a brilliantly executed piece of comedic genius.

The video was created by Tag McNamara of 18 Lives and it is pure gold.

Perhaps the next installment chronicling LeBron’s return to Cleveland by way of cleverly edited footage from “Dumb and Dumber” should be inserting Pat Riley’s face on Harry’s as he sits on the toilet pooping his brains out at Mary’s house after Lloyd pours far more than the recommended “one-half teaspoon for fast, effective relief” into Harry’s beverage … because you just know Riley practically crapped himself upon learning James wasn’t coming back.
