If you’ve ever wondered what a 6-foot-7 Klay Thompson bobblehead would look like if it had its mouth wide open, allowing you to stare directly into the maw of madness, then you’re in luck! The Golden State Warriors have just the giveaway for you.
Let’s back up just a bit. When the Warriors host the Los Angeles Lakers on Jan. 14, they’ll be giving away a Thompson bobblehead to the first 10,000 fans through the door. But it’s not your average bobblehead — Thompson will be joined by his faithful dog, Rocco, who stars in many of Thompson’s social-media posts:
That’s a pretty awesome giveaway, especially for the dog lovers in the Bay Area. That’s not all, though. One lucky fan will also get a life-sized version of the Thompson-Rocco bobblehead. On the surface, that’s spectacular. Then you look at the actual bobblehead, and it’s kind of unsettling:
Look, sure. Thompson often lets out an enthusiastic yell when he knocks down a backbreaking 3 or posts up a smaller guard or makes a great defensive play. And that’s what the bobblehead is trying to capture, obviously.
At that scale, with a head that big, however, it’s truly terrifying. In the best possible way, of course. But still terrifying.
