Chandler Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki star in Mavericks Zoolander parody

Thursday December 31st, 2015

The Mavericks promotional department is continuing its string of hits. After giving the world “Too Much Monta” and Chandler Parsons and Devin Harris riding a camel, the team has topped themselves again with ZooChandler.

The Zoolander parody combines Parsons award-winning looks with Dirk Nowtizki’s general comedy genius to give fans very weird, and very entertaining clip, with the Dallas stars heads pasted on top of scenes from the Ben Stiller film.

Wesley Matthews even makes an appearance filling in for Billy Zane’s classic cameo in the original, while Zaza Pachulia fills in for Will Ferrell’s evil fashion designer as MuZatu.

The video must have gotten the team in the right mindset for its game on Wednesday, as the Mavericks were able to hand the Warriors their second loss of the season.
