Last 8th of July, Lebron James has had a 1 hour long TV interview on ESPN channel.
From many articles on the web, nearly 10 million people were watching it, holding their breath.
Entitled “The Decision”, it was about Lebron’s decision to join another Basketball team and he eventually said he will join the Miami Heat.
I’m not much of a Basketball fan but it seems there has been a great mainstream “drama” going on about it.
What I can see, as a result, it that many videos parodies of the decision began to appear on the web :
The same day the interview happened, a bunch of Downfall parodies only centred on the event were made with viewcounts growing from 70 to 60 000 views.
As for now, I’ve seen about 8 different DownFall videos about it.
They seem to be used to translate the fan’s disappointment.
I’ve also seen a parody where Lebron announces that he is gay (9th of July)
The same day, the Old Spice man made a spoof of Lebron’s decision :
And finally a College Humor parody from the 8th of July.
Is it too mainstream of an event anyway ?
