Friday morning. It’s been a long week but you are almost there. Just a few more calls, one more meeting and then the weekend and freedom await. We know you need a little extra boost to get you through the final day of the work week and luckily, Poker Central and Death Wish Coffee have you covered. The world’s strongest coffee gives you a “Morning Perk,” bringing you the best of the internet from the past week.
“Life moves at you pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
The internet wasn’t around when Ferris Bueller gave everyone the perfect high school yearbook quote but his words are just as powerful today as they were in the late 80’s. The internet, more often than not, moves faster than life itself and while we’re sure we missed some of it, these were our favorites from the past week.
The Mannequin Challenge craze didn’t make it out of 2016 but no one told the Korean Basketball League. During their All-Star Game earlier this week, players on the court, players on the bench, coaches, referees, basically everyone in the building except the fans, froze after a shot went up. The ball then bounced around while everyone on the court remained frozen and then, thankfully, a buzzer sounded and play resumed. I could probably write 10,000 words on how terrible and hilarious this is but I only have room for one take, so here it is. A few seconds after his shot bounces off the rim, everyone is standing still and the camera zooms in on the poor guy who missed the shot. He almost starts laughing but in a few days, when he realizes that this is most likely the only clip NBA scouts will ever see of him playing basketball, he might not find it as funny.
