Meet Clutch. He’s the beloved mascot of the Houston Rockets. As you can see, Clutch seems like a delightful character, harmless enough, exactly what folks have come to expect out of a mascot. Cute, over-sized and loveable. A mascot children as well as adults can love. But when it comes to commitment to a bit, Clutch doesn’t take that kind of responsibility lightly. He’s a committed, tenacious performer. To wit: for a clearly staged scene during Tuesday night’s home court tilt against the Los Angeles Lakers (lots of good stuff from this game: see here and here), cameras captured Clutch coming upon a supposed Lakers fan, fully regaled in a Kobe Bryant jersey and annoyingly chatting away on his cell phone. That’s when Clutch springs into action. And when Clutch let’s it all hang out for an in-arena routine, he unleashes the beast. Armed with a cake, Clutch unloads on the poor guy. I mean it’s violent, so much so it’s reasonable to wonder if the actor was in stable condition afterward or required medical attention and/or a trip to the hospital. Jeez Louise. Shocking brutality. The force in which Clutch drives the cake into the guy’s waiting mug is aggressive to say the least. Hazard pay-worthy, possibly. The guy will be picking pieces of cake and hunks of frosting out of every orifice in his head for weeks. And here it is in slo-mo: Oh, the humanity. Poor, poor Lakers Impersonator Guy.
