Video: The Warriors’ D-League mascot is a dancing sea turtle in sunglasses

, on December 3, 2013 , 3:00PM


Look, I don’t know what to tell you guys. The Santa Cruz Warriors, who are the D-League affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, have a mascot named Mav’Riks — which is a really weird name for a Warriors team, by the way, though I really hope it’s a deep zinger about their 2007 first round upset of the Dallas Mavericks — and it is a sea turtle that wears sunglasses and dances.


And sometimes, the Internet rips a clip of him dancing in silence and it is just magical and not at all unsettling. Have you ever seen a human-sized turtle with such graceful moves that appear to be inspired by complete silence (even though we know there has to be music playing)? I don’t think you have, because human-sized sea turtles just aren’t that common these days. I personally haven’t seen one in ages and I’m always looking. Glad to see they’re still around here and there.

    He’s doing the dance from napoleon dynamite. all it needs is the music added in (which is probably copyright or something).
