The Clippers new logo is going to be the greatest practical joke ever, right?

Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer went on Conan O'Brien's show yesterday to unveil the franchise's new logo:

Immediately people were blown away by how terrible it is.  It's also basically the same as the Chicago Cubs' logo, which is quite humorous considering the longstanding perception of both franchises as perennial losers.

But here's the really bizarre thing: Ballmer and star player Blake Griffin also made this video for Funny or Die:

I am so confused by this.

They're making fun of themselves for coming up with stupid knockoff logo ideas, but that's what they actually did.  This only makes sense if the entire thing is a joke, which it definitely isn't.

Unless it's the greatest joke ever, and Ballmer plans unveil the real logo soon.  At this point the Clippers should probably go with that plan, regardless of whether or not it was their original intention.

  1. The Clippers old logo looked exactly like the Lakers logo. The Clips new logo looks just like the Cubs. Lack of creativity in this world. A lot of cookie cutter art and copy cats!
