“Thunder your Butts off” video gets Thunder employee fired

Considering how well the Oklahoma City Thunder are playing right now, it’s okay to get excited about them. It’s not okay, apparently, to make a YouTube parody rap video telling people to “Thunder their butt off” while being employed by the Thunder. “Lunchmeat,” the masked gentleman in the video who was previously a “stormchaser” for the Thunder, was fired for making this video.

The video doesn’t appear to be offensive at all, but if “lunchmeat” did sign a contract that said he couldn’t do this, he probably should have thought a little harder before imploring people to Thunder their butts off whilst identifying himself as a Thunder employee. (Seriously, between the pseudonym and the mask, would the Thunder really have recognized him if he didn’t explicitly say he was a Thunder employee, considering the video only has 2,537 views as of this writing?) Of course, we don’t know exactly what “lunchmeat” promised not to do when he signed his contract, so the Thunder may simply be in the wrong on this one. We’ll see if there’s any fallout from this.

    They fired him for that? They should’ve given him a promotion or raise!

    As Cris Carter and Keyshon would say: ‘C’MON MAN!!!’ For Heaven’s Sake, Thunder, you gotta give this kid a break. Why advertise to the World that someone higher-up in that Organization has something stuck up THEIR butt. Hell, if every employer in America had an employee as enthusiastic and energetic and loyal as this kid (perhaps with that a slight adjustment to Right)…the USA would be back on top again…just like THE THUNDER.

    I think these stoners knew what they were doing. He knew he would probably get fired for this, said so himself, and therefore could raise a big stink about how moral it is. Already 86k views..check out this db’s other videos..there is maybe 80-100 views on each. They KNEW this would blow up and therefore get their dumb video some hits. I think its bs. Then again, are stoners really this smart??
