A fan who was brought onto the court at half-time during a college basketball game delivered an off-the-cuff pick-up line before making a shot from half court to win a prize.
You can see him shooting both shots in the video below:
What’s more, he was wearing a hot dog costume at the time, and his prize was remarkably fitting to that.
However, we’re all here to learn about what his pick-up line was, so we’ll get into that.
During half-time, they had the same sort of ridiculous contest that you might expect to see at any game, whereby Jamison and others were invited onto the court to see if they could sink a bucket from the mid-point of the court.
However, Robbie decided to shoot his shot in more than one way, trying a pick-up line on the person who was announcing him.
Remember, he’s dressed as a wiener here, so probably not the most suave look that he’s capable of.
We hope so, anyway.
Upon being asked what his name was, Robbie responded: “Most people call me Robbie, but you can call me anytime.”
Smooth, especially for someone dressed as a huge sausage.
But, if you’re going to talk a big game, then you’d better bring that game to the court, too.
And luckily, Robbie was ready.
Without breaking stride, he delivered his line, then set off at a run for the center line.
With an almighty jump shot – seemingly unencumbered by his hot dog costume – Robbie flung the ball into the air and dropped the rock straight through.
It’s the kind of shot that NBA players attempt at the final buzzer, but – in all honesty – he made it look easy.
The crowd went wild, as you can probably imagine.
Did he get his date? We don’t really know.
However, what he did get was completely ridiculous.
The prize for making his incredible shot – the sporting one, at least – was a year’s supply of hot dogs.
The half-time event was sponsored by Sugardale Hot Dogs, hence the costumes.
Still, you’ve got to admire his confidence, as well as his ability to then deliver straight away in front of a huge crowd.
Maybe they should have stuck him on the bench for the second half.
Instead, he’s simply gone down in history as one of the great shot-shooters of our time, in more ways than one.
