STOMP makes basketball music with the Harlem Globetrotters

In celebration of the world famous Harlem Globetrotters‘ 90th year as an organization, Globetrotters William ‘Bull’ Bullard, Brawley ‘Cheese’ Chisholm, Tay ‘Firefly’ Fisher, and Chris ‘Handles’ Franklin teamed up with eight performers from STOMP to create this super fun, 2m16s, one continuous shot video, and according to NBC Sports, it only took seven tries to get the entire thing right.
