Today’s selection was inspired by a video of a sloth crossing a road in Costa Rica. As a nod to the sloth’s spread-eagled position when a good samaritan picks him up, a clever clever internet user reworked the video, adding “I Believe I Can Fly” as a backing track. The friend who shared this was enraged by the song choice (a fury on par only with her loathing for Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose,” she says), and a flashback was born.

Back before Trapped in the Closet was even a twinkle in his eye, R.Kelly, one of the great pop-culture enigmas of our time, released this inoffensive (objectively speaking) feel-good anthem for a sports-themed half-cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny. We’re already deep into batshit territory as it is, so why not set the video in a cornfield…and then PROJECT SPACE JAM ONTO BILLBOARDS THERE. Yes. Yes.
