Leave it to Dallas Mavericks big man Dirk Nowitzki to actually make the lyrics to the Britney Spears pop song “Oops!… I Did It Again” somewhat tolerable.
Nowitzki, sporting his reading glasses and a robe, while sitting fireside next to his 2011 NBA Championship banner, dug into this so-called “classic” and toned down the flair, making it a sophisticated tale, rather than an unlistenable tune. Well done, Dirk. I was pretty sure that even Robert Osborne couldn’t make these lyrics sound bearable. Take a look at Dirk’s performance:
I look forward to seeing what he’ll tackle next. At this point, though, if he keeps nailing these readings he might have his post-NBA career all figured out.
