Syracuse’s final possession against NC State set to ‘Yakety Sax’ (video)


If you’re a fan of the Syracuse Orange, you probably don’t want to watch this video.

(Unless, of course, you’re some sort of masochist and/or a huge fan of The Benny Hill Show — note: these two things are not mutually exclusive — in which case, uh, you’ll probably love this video.)

As you probably know, the Syracuse Orange lost the the North Carolina State Wolfpack in heartbreaking fashion in the ACC tournament on Friday. Down by only three points with a little over 20 seconds remaining in the game, the Orange missed a comical number of shots during the final possession. The whole spectacle was pretty funny — again, unless you’re a Syracuse fan — but its hilarity has been heightened thanks to the following video, which sets the Orange’s futility to “Yakety Sax” by Boots Randolph:

As this video demonstrates, pretty much any footage can be made funnier with the addition of “Yakety Sax.” That’s an indisputable scientific fact.
