This video is as awesome as it is hugely instructive. If anyone wanted to learn, in less than a minute, what the difference is between basketball fans on the two sides of the Atlantic, they need look no further.
The video in question has been uploaded by YouTube user Che DoncA and it shows American basketball player Charles Jenkins and his sister sitting on front row at a basketball game.
Now, we are not given any details on where the action takes place, but Jenkins currently plays for Crvena Zvezda Belgrade of the Serbian League and it is almost certain that he is watching a game of his teammates. But that’s a side issue.
The amazing thing about the video is the reaction of Jenkins’ sister (we don’t know her name) to the fans’ chants and dances — she clearly is unprepared for that. I think that Tyrone_Lue — the Redditor who pointed me to the video — described it best:
A woman from the US experiences cultural shock on a European basketball court.
A cultural shock it is…
