Background info here after a little digging is that this dude “Rumman” does “Hooping Social Experiments.” So this isn’t just some random video taken at a gym – which is pretty obvious after a few seconds. However it doesn’t look like what actually HAPPENS is staged. Like the dude getting crossed up and then swinging at him is (seemingly) 100% genuine. Yes Rumman sets everyone up by dressing in non-basketball clothes and mic’ing himself up and acting like he doesn’t play that much. But it seems like he broke an ankle hard enough and embarrassed a guy so badly he got swung at. Which, as everyone who has ever played pickup with strangers in a competitive setting knows, is a totally reasonable thing to expect.
Rumman hopped into a game at a local gym is Dallas. Obviously, he got passed over for games 3 times in a row.
Then he got out there and did work.
I like how he “quickly told everyone ‘It’s Just a Prank!!”
That always works. Everyone just stops what they’re doing and laughs and hi-fives. Ha ha ha. Oh it was just a prank bro. Okay I take back trying to knock your head off your shoulders. Now that I know it’s a prank I am no longer embarrassed by you emasculating me.
