Portland Trail Blazers
fans awoke this morning to star player Brandon Roy
in a new role: bit player in this video (lyrics NSFW) by Cali & Cavalli
(at about the 1:29 and 3:07 mark).
Roy's brief non-speaking appearances in the video "What They Want" (the "they" being pot and money) has been the subject of conversation on 95.5 The Game with morning co-host Dwight Jaynes
and on Blazersedge
A couple of cameos by Roy in a video with a group from his Seattle home seems a little surprising. But Roy's expression in his cameos is more of befuddlement (sorta like ex-Yankees shortstop Phil Rizzuto's speaking role
long ago in Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light") than anything. Still, if the "they" is Blazers management, this video can hardly be what "they want" for the face of their franchise.
