Saturday Night Live are known for picking apart the most absurd elements of modern life, but rarely does sneaker culture find itself in their crosshairs. But thanks to LaVar Ball, that's where it landed.
The satire gods parodied father Ball by getting Kenan Thompson to don a moustache and a BBB tee and spew outlandish claims. According to SNL’s Ball, Lonzo is on course to win MVP, the dunk competition, the 3-point shooting contest, the Power Ball jackpot as well as be named America’s Top Model.
BBB fans will also be stoked that SNL reveal LiAngelo’s first signature sneaker. The sneakers are named the ‘LaGelo 20s’, and come with a host of forward-thinking features.
As Kenan Ball puts it: ‘Each one costs $700,000. That’s right, each sneaker. You can only buy them one at a time. Never a pair! Each LaGelo 20 comes fully loaded with power laces, a Bose 24 speaker sound system and the world’s finest chicken rotisserie cooker!’
Roasting LaVar Ball with chicken-roasting sneakers is ridiculous; the price tag on the other hand might just be giving him ideas. Stay tuned for LaVar's response — you know it's coming.
