Is This Really The Greatest Vine Ever?

+

The Vine below has been making the rounds on Twitter, and rightfully so: It’s a masterwork of coordination between a bunch of bros who I assume had nothing better to do on a drunken afternoon. Indeed, it’s impressive: there’s a lot of moving parts played to perfection, and the stretch on the dunk is truly Jordan-esque. And yet… the final step is kind of a let down, isn’t it? Homeboy is just sitting there on the lip of the pool, not doing a damn thing as his friends bust their ass to get the timing off without a hitch. The no-look alley oop is nice, but that’s just tossing a ball up above your head. I’m not convinced it’s the Greatest Vine, as is being breathlessly advertised on Twitter; a very good Vine or even a seminal Vine, but not the greatest. The real greatest is right below it, but you can judge for yourself.
