Sports post-game press conferences usually follow the same script. An opening statement by the coach, followed by the same general questions about the game, and a couple of coaching cliches later it’s over. You know the ones.
“Gotta give credit to the other team”
“Really thought our guys gave 110% tonight”
“I don’t think the refs really had any effect on the game tonight”
Sound familiar? Well, noted parody musician Weird Al Yankovic decided it was time to make fun of the whole press conference scenario. In a new video from The Kicker on YouTube, he takes on the role of “Grizzled Coach” delivering every sports cliche imaginable. Check out the video above.
One thing’s for sure, you’ll never be able to watch another post-game press conference the same way.
