Charles Barkley Plays With the Shake Weight; Kenny Smith Can't Help Himself

⇥⇥⇥⇥⇥⇥

Many thanks to The 700 Level for finding this bit during TNT's broadcast on Monday night. If you're unfamiliar with the Shake Weight, you can check out the real thing here. (And yes, this is a real product, even if you didn't believe the ads you saw.)

The juxtaposition of the Chuckster's cluelessness with Kenny Smith being in on it from the jump makes it even better.

⇥Smith: "It seems like you had a lot of practice with this."⇥

⇥Barkley: (Continues shaking.)⇥

⇥

⇥Smith: "I'm not sayin' you knew how to do this from the start, but you really knew how to do this without the instructions."⇥

⇥

⇥Barkley: (Continues looking at the Shake Weight quizzically.)⇥

⇥

⇥Smith: "The only thing about this weight is that if you do it too much, you do go blind."⇥

⇥

⇥Barkley: (Finally gets it.) "Hey Kenny, you'd be walking around like Arnold Schwarzenegger if this thing really worked.⇥

Someone from the TNT crew must've been watching SNL this past weekend. (More suggestive humor at that link.) This is why the TNT show is the best studio show on TV folks. Kenny and Charles just doing things until Ernie Johnson blushes and has to go to commercial. Give 'em all Emmys.↵
