Clownin' around with Brandon Marshall

The behavior of Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, whose "hamstring injury" over the weekend followed obvious signals that he'd rather undergo several weeks of continuous dental work that participate in the team's training camp, clearly isn't to the liking of YouTuber garyhoosier. He's created a video set to the classic sounds of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "Tears of a Clown" that juxtaposes ignominious references to Marshall's past -- his quote about hating Denver, a showboating glove shtick that teammate Brandon Stokely narrowly managed to prevent -- with images of fellow divas Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco and dissolves in which BM's face is transformed into that of an alternately grinning and weeping Bozo. Doubt Brandon will enjoy it -- but plenty of frustrated fans'll likely feel differently.
