This Icelandic basketball commentator losing it over a buzzer-beater is an absolute gem


There’s just something special about hearing commentators lose it in another language, but this moment from Iceland’s basketball playoffs is on a whole other level.


According to Google Translate “nei” is Icelandic for “no,” so this tracks. I mean, it’s a dang good shot in a high stakes game — it’s worthy of the reaction. That said, I just love a dude yelling “NEI!” over and over again.

It goes on so long that it’s funny, then stops being funny, then he “nei’s” two more times and it’s sublime. Man, Icelandic basketball is low-key lit. Going to need to see more of this and determine if there are more “NEI!” worthy moments we’re missing.
