The Atlanta Hawks have a new Code of Conduct video, and it’s glorious.  You’ve probably already seen the “Blurred Lines” parody, with the Hawks version sung by PA announcer Ryan Cameron.

This version, a parody of the Miley Cyrus song, features Hawks Cheerleaders Shamea and Danielle, a cameo by Dominique Wilkins and Harry The Hawk swinging on a ball.

In case you forgot the previous version:

    I was so relieved to hear you’d finally replaced your code of conduct video that parodies a song that so obviously glorifies rape with something new (what do you really think “blurred lines” means?). My happiness was soon replaced with a crushed sadness knowing I’d have to hear a parody of another horrible song. I understand the concept of making it attention-grabbing, but I can’t even understand what is being said. One thing to consider is how well anyone in the stadium can understand the words to a song sung in an alternately low or high pitched nasal/off-key whine echoing around in a giant arena. Not so pleasant. Overall it’s a very minor-key, down tempo and weirdly dark and (again) overtly sexual video that makes my stomach churn and doesn’t set a fun tone for the game you’re about to watch. The parody is cliche and overdone. Pick something more friendly, fun, and clear?
