When Kanye West released “Way Too Cold” (formerly named “Theraflu”) last month, he professed his love for Kim Kardashian and dismissed her infamous ex-husband of 72 days, pro basketball player Kris Humphries.
“And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim/Around the same time, she fell in love with him/Well, that’s cool, baby girl do your thing/Lucky I didn’t have Jay drop him from the team,” Yeezy spits on the track.
The him ’Ye is referring to on the song is Humphries, who plays forward for the Brooklyn Nets. Kanye’s big brother, Jay-Z, is a part-owner of the NBA franchise, thus Yeezy’s line about getting Hov to drop Humphries from the team.
Well, after ridicule and an NBA season, in which Humphries was booed heavily by basketball fans all over the country, the Minnesota-born hoopster is firing back, especially at Kanye.
In a recent FunnyorDie.com skit entitled, Kris Humphries is a Douchebag, Humphries gets in on the joke of being labeled a douchebag, as he sits and listens to two marketing agents present him with everything from toilet paper with his face on it to a video game that lets users kick him in the genitals.
After a brief break, Humphries exits the room and reappears, wearing Kanye’s trademark shutter glasses in trying to look more like a “douchebag.”
That’s when one of the agents tells him, “”We don’t want you to look like an asshole…we just want you to look like a douchebag.”
That’s of course in reference to Kanye’s “Runaway” record, in which he proclaims, “Let’s have a toast for the douchebags, let’s have a toast for the assholes/Let’s have a toast for the scumbags, every one of them that I know.”
Humphries’ Nets, which finished with a lowly 22-44 record this year, will begin playing in Brooklyn this fall for the 2012-13 season.—Mark Lelinwalla
