San Antonio Spurs A-Team spoof mocks team

An animated video spoofing the television show The A-Team and featuring fictional versions of the San Antonio Spurs was released Thursday.

The video, Spurs Special Forces, supposes that Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are actually members of an elite international commando unit wrongfully imprisoned in 1996 who escape prison, "hiding in plain sight as the most boring team in professional sports."

The video is hilarious and well worth the time but in broad strokes, Mannu Ginobli poses as a child and gets kidnapped, Tim Duncan uses his powers of boredom to subdue a security guard, Gregg Popovich plans a mission and Tony Parker has an accent.

"This is San Antonio. We don't buy championships and we certainly don't buy freedom. We earn it," says cartoon Popovich.

Well done animator Matt Hill; you've raised the bar for mocking professional sports.
