VIDEO: Charles Barkley Doesn't Know His Mic's Open, Says Hilarious Things

At this point, you probably know that Charles Barkley is a spokesman for Weight Watchers, pitching people on the product by telling people he was once known as "Sir Cumference" before using it. I'm sure you all thought he was being totally sincere, because nobody is realer than Charles Barkley.

Well, Barkley is real all right, at least when he's off camera. Fans who watch on international NBA League Pass were treated to Barkley joking about how he's scamming Weight Watchers in what he thought was a candid moment during Thursday's game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat. The cameras were still rolling, though, and this all became YouTube gold.


Barkley said the program has helped him, but then said this:

"I ain't giving away no free money. I thought this was the biggest scam going, being paid to watch sports, but this Weight Watchers thing is a bigger scam."

To top it all off, Barkley opined on the state of the Hawks, saying he hates to watch them play and adding that they should chase Dwight Howard. The world demands more off-the-cuff Chuck, and it demands it now.
