Mariah Carey‘s disastrous New Year’s Eve performance has been the talk of the pop culture world this week. The late night talkers have made light of the incident over the past few days. And on Tuesday night, an NBA mascot even got in on the fun.
The Coyote, who serves as the mascot for the San Antonio Spurs, came out to perform for the crowd dressed in the same outfit that Carey donned on Saturday night.
The mascot bopped around for a while as Carey’s song ‘Emotions’ played over the arena’s sound system. Then, a few seconds later, The Coyote tapped on his microphone, as if it had been cut off. He tried to get the sound engineer to cut off the song, to no avail. He then dropped his mic, and stormed off the court.
Well played, Coyote. Watch above, via the San Antonio Spurs.
