Dallas Mavericks Kick Off Regular Season With Uncanny Parody of "What Does the Fox Say?"

The Dallas Morning News is reporting this morning that the Mavericks' 477-game sellout streak, the longest in the NBA, could end at tonight's season opener versus the Atlanta Hawks.

We can only assume the piece was written before Dirk & Co. unveiled their secret weapon: a one-minute video parody of Ylvis' mega-viral Norwegian dance hit about the enduring mystery of foxes. Dallas mixes things up a bit, posing the question as "What do the Mavs Say?"

(Spoiler alert: It's "Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding.")

Yup, it's dumb and campy, but good for them. If they were humorless shits, overly enamored of themselves, they'd be the Cowboys.

I love that Dirk is willing to just have fun with bits like this and the Geico commercial spoof. In a few years when he retires we are all going to look back and realize how refreshing Dirk was and how much we miss him. Besides being by far the greatest Maverick ever, he's always willing to have fun both on and off the court. I really hope he stays in Dallas and doesn't move back to Germany when his career is done.

@alteredjustice @P1Gunter Dirk could run for Mayor of Dallas and win in a landslide. There's no doubt that he will always have a job here wherever the hell he wants. If Dirk wants Derek Harper's job, it would be his. The question is if he would stay here instead of going back to Germany (I think the wife and kids mean he probably stays) and if he wants to be in the public spotlight. Dirk has always been a bit of an enigma.

@P1Gunter @alteredjustice I think Dirk could do an announcer gig if he wanted to, but it wouldn't be the best role for him if you ask me. I think given his dedication to practice, he'd be an excellent coach/mentor like Geschwindner was for him. He could do something similar to what Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon have done for themselves.

I don't think he'll ever really "leave" Dallas but he'll have a presence in both places. There's a good little documentary on the Mavs website, "How Dirk Became Dirk" or something like that. It aired on FSSW at one point as well. Gives you a little idea of his humble background.
