The New Minnesota Timberwolves PSA Is A Masterpiece
As the resident director, managing editor, and grand poobah of sports coverage here at Thought Catalog (all self-appointed titles), I wanted to share a new video written and directed by Kevin Love, NBA All-Star and starting power forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
It stars members of the Minnesota Timberwolves team, and the video is meant to raise awareness for a coat drive that Kevin Love is organizing with the Salvation Army. Here is the video:
A couple thoughts…
Call the Academy. We have a whole new entry in the Best Live Action Short Film category, and whatever prissy nine-minute-long rumination on despair that was favored to win this year should just pack everything up and go home.
The attention to detail is magnificent. Notice the ever-so-noticeable sparkle in the tooth at 0:43. Notice the subtle eagle cry that sounds out at J.J. Barea blows a kiss to the enraptured audience. It’s these small details that separate this from other saxophone/moonface viral videos.
The special effects. Man, that guy with the beard looks cool, but there is definitely no saxophone in his hand. OH MY GOD AND NOW THERE’S A SAXOPHONE IN HIS HAND.
I’d write more, but I need to save some ideas for the novelization of this video, which I will begin as soon as I stop running around my apartment laughing. Publishers, you know where to find me.

That is what the selfie is! It marks a time when someone feels beautiful and self assured.
The guy who you would be just perfect for and everything about him is magical and mysterious and if he would only give you the time of day you’d probably have a ring by spring.
