IFC’s hit sketch comedy series Portlandia has seen its fair share of guest stars, but this is the first time an entire NBA team has appeared on the show. In keeping with the Portland , Ore.setting, the Portland Trail Blazers took part in an amusing sketch with Portlandia stars Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen.
Feminists bookstore owners and recurring characters Toni and Candace question why the Trail Blazers dance team is so scantily clad. It seems they eventually convince the girls to cover up a bit more and read poetry instead of dance.
Since Toni and Candace think they made a positive impact on the dancers, the duo decide to cheer up the Trail Blazers after a loss. The results are hilariously terrible. As Deadspin points out, this isn’t LaMarcus Aldridge’s first time on Portlandia.
Watch the clip below, which airs on IFC tonight (April 10) at 10 p.m. EST.
