Bob Knight Guitar Hero Video

This is classic: Bob Knight, Rick Pitino, Roy Williams, and Mike Krzyzewski do their take on the “Risky Business” scene in a commercial for “Guitar Hero,” much to the chagrin of Metallica.

I know the joke’s supposed to be Knight’s spoof of his famous tantrums but I especially like the way he delivers the line, “We’re playing the Guitar He-ro.”

    I don’t know if I can describe how uncomfortable I am with this video. Or as my wife put it, “How low can you go BOBBY?”
