There are a lot of things you shouldn’t do in life, but the dangers of over-inflating a basketball probably never crossed your mind. Maybe it will after you watch this video of a kid that could have had his face taken off after over-inflating a ball before it blows up right in front of him.

Remember those really good Kyrie Irving “Uncle Drew” Pepsi commercials where Kyrie would get a whole mess of make up applied to his face and then he’d go out and dominate pickup games as an old man? Well, these guys did it for real. No disguises, no gimmicks. As a part of a Centrum ad

Anytime that you can get Roy Williams to dance, you have immediate viral gold. Check out members of the UNC athletic department, including Marcus Paige, and a whole bunch of other athletes dancing to Pharrell’s ‘Happy.’ By far the highlight was Roy Williams’ shimmy.

The good news for this toddler is that his family bought an actual basketball hoop, which he’ll be able to shoot on one day. Until then, rather than let this poor kid fail over and over by launching a ball at a cardboard box, the family should spring for a mini hoop to help him
