Lance Stephenson's viral NBA All-Star video is the best thing you will see today

Last night, Tuesday, January 14, as the Indiana Pacers were finishing up their 116-92 victory over the Sacramento Kings, local Producer, R Hustle Films, launched Pacers Forward, Lance Stephenson's NBA All-Star promotional video.

And the result was hilarious.

The video features a bow-tie clad, suspenders wearing, Stephenson taking on the role of "Sir-Lance-Alot" and campaigning for his "friend", Lance Stephenson, to be voted into the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans, LA. As of today, the video has already been viewed over 12,000 times, and for good reason. Lance brought the same kind of crazy energy he brings to the court to the video, and his acting chops, in all seriousness, are not too bad.

This isn't the first time an NBA player has resorted to the absurd to campaign for an addition into the NBA All-Star Game. In 2008, then Raptors Power Forward, Chris Bosh, took on the role of used-car salesman to try and entice voters into choosing him for the game. Coincidentally, the 2008 contest also took place in New Orleans.

And, in case you're wondering, it worked.

Stephenson has averaged just over 13 ppg this season, and a little over six assists and five rebounds. Not necessarily Paul George or Lebron James type numbers, but if you have watched the Indiana Pacers this year, you would know it's the intangibles he brings to the game that make him a worthy candidate.

If you want to vote for Stephenson for this year's game, social media users can tweet "Lance Stephenson #NBABallot" on Twitter, or text "Stephenson" to 69622 on their mobile phones.
