Detroit Pistons' 'Single Ladies' parody a real court jester

If there are two things in this world I love about the same amount, it's the Detroit Pistons and anything associated with Beyonce's "Single Ladies" dance.

So you can imagine how excited I was when -- through the magic of Facebook -- this Detroit Free Press story was brought to my attention this morning. It chronicles rise of a very popular video sweeping Pistons nation that features the team's mascot, Hooper, doing a parody of Miss Knowles captivating gyrations.

One guy seems particularly excited about it, though.
""A lot of people have said it's the greatest thing they've ever seen," said Diane Ferranti, the Pistons' vice president of multimedia. "I think it just cracks people up and it strikes people as so funny. It's just the unexpected, I think. Our mascot and two Spare Tires are doing what this beautiful 20-something girl has put up there and they're copying that."
This statement reveals that most Pistons fans haven't seen a tremendous amount of great things in their time and that they probably also missed the Justin Timberlake parody on "Saturday Night Live."

Glad they're having fun though.
