Fighting for what’s right. Jimmy Kimmel recruited three of the NBA’s biggest stars to record a public service announcement about an issue that really matters to them: wobbly tables in restaurants.
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host teamed up with Nick Young, Jeremy Lin, and Dikembe Mutombo for his wobbly tables PSA, produced ahead of the Golden State Warriors’ 2015 Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, June 16.
“I’d like to get serious for a moment now about something that affects all of us,” Kimmel, 47, began in the video, which made its way online on Tuesday. “Recently I teamed up with a group of current and former NBA players to shine a light on one of the, I think, most pernicious and under-addressed problems.”
Against a moody soundtrack, the four stars then voiced their true feelings about unstable tables.
“Hi, I’m NBA star Jeremy Lin,” begins the Los Angeles Lakers player, opening the clip. “Do you own a restaurant, cafe, or medium-priced bistro? If so, I’ve got an important message for you.”
Iggy Azalea’s future husband Young then made his appearance, saying, “When I’m out eating a mini panini or a zesty corn fritter, there’s one thing that can ruin my meal: a wobbly table.”
Young is shown stabbing at a plate with a pair of chopsticks as his tablecloth-covered table shakes, before NBA legend Mutombo makes his appearance. “Wobbly tables are the worst,” the Democratic Republic of the Congo native says in his trademark growl. “Every time I cut my meat, it’s like I’m on the boat.”
