Hawks organist mocks instant replay with new music video

Thursday January 7th, 2016

Atlanta Hawks organist Sir Foster is beloved by NBA fans for spicing up games at Phillips Arena with his reworking of hip-hop, R&B and pop songs. Now the musician has an original tune about the sport he loves, and a video featuring the team as he sings about the troubles of instant replay.

Foster hilariously gives voice to every fan’s laments about video reviews slowing down the pace of play, with referees waiting for word from the command center in Seacacus before the action can start again.

The clip also shows fans that most of the Hawks do not have a chance at a second career as backup dancers, with Dennis Schroder unable to move a muscle in his short cameo and Tiago Splitter’s attempt to bounce along with the music going about as poorly as possible.
