Virginia Tech basketball coach Buzz Williams became the latest sports figure to confront the darkest reaches of Twitter in a Jimmy Kimmel-inspired "mean tweets" video.

The Hokies didn't go easy on Williams in their tweet-selection. Some of the tweets are really not nice.

Here are some highlights from the video, which you can watch below.

- Williams is confused about what "henchman" means in a comic book context

- He is very impressed (and uninsulted) by @Nobe_darrin's implication that he gargles with barbed wire

- He knows Charles Barkley well but is not "near as heavy" as the Round Mound of Rebound

- He enjoys Frank Caliendo imitations

- He reveals he does not know who Channing Tatum is

- He has been compared to Curly Howard of Three Stooges fame

- He has a sense of humor about his sometimes-eccentric tie selection

• Hawks kiss cam shows hilarious, possibly staged beer spill 

Here's the whole video:
