What is Mark Sanchez doing? (Video)


So Mark Sanchez posted an odd video to his Instagram account yesterday. It starts out with him staring into the camera with a stern look. Drake’s song “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is playing in the background as his head bounces along to the beat.

Then he starts to smile as he moves his head around. He smiles for a moment as his head is on the left side of the screen, but as his head moves on to the right side of the screen he grows serious again. Then he rubs his face with a “Hulk” hand before it flips to a Starbucks cup and his hands.

My first thought was: “Wow, Mark is enjoying those pain killers.”

Sanchez just had surgery on his shoulder. Then I thought to myself, “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is a weird choice of song for a quarterback who has been replaced by a rookie quarterback and will likely be cut or traded at the end of the season.

Turns out this is about some viral video on the internet I was unaware of. I guess a girl was sent a video by a guy who was hitting on her at Starbucks and he played the Drake song in the back ground of this video. So this is just Sanchez recreating it. I don’t find it funny but maybe you do.
