Ahead of Thursday’s NBA clash between the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets at the O2 Arena, BT Sport have put together a rather nifty video involving Arsenal stars Alex Iwobi, Aaron Ramsey and Per Mertesacker along with basketball acrobatic team the Dunking Devils.

The Dunking Devils, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent last year, pull off some pretty spectacular moves with the help of the Arsenal trio, with Iwobi looking particularly excited at the whole thing!

Arsenal do have a habit of getting involved in rather too many ‘humorous’ social media things but this is spot on!

The Nuggets do have close ties to the Gunners, with bigwig Stan Kroenke owning the Denver basketball club and some of their players also dropped in to say hi to their Arsenal counterparts.

    What is it about viral videos that causes grown-ups to whoop and yelp like kids at every given opportunity? Occasionally with high-fives and fist-bumping.

    Yes, the mighty dunks are impressive. We get it. But the cringey bro-yelping at every given opportunity makes the video damn near impossible to watch with the sound on.
