UNDATED (CNN) -- He never asked them to pass him a beer, but that didn't stop basketball fans from reaching out of their speeding SUV and handing a can of brew to the newest Los Angeles Laker.
Just because it's called the passing lane, doesn't mean someone should pass you a beer. But that's just what an SUV full of Los Angeles Lakers fans did when they spotted the Lakers newest star, Steve Nash, in a taxi on freeway 110.
Now the guy shooting this is none other than point guard Steve Nash himself. And when they finally completed the hand off Nash just swung the camera around and added a comment, "Fans have been pretty good so far."
Nash later tweeted out the video, saying "thanks for the warm welcome", though we're hoping the can of Keystone light was cold. The rowdy fans opened their own twitter account calling themselves '@LABeerBros.' and they posted video of the view from their SUV and the celebration following the hand-off.
The @LABeerBros tweeted that they were 'On the way to the Dodgers game, guy in back says 'That's Steve Nash" slowed down to check sure enough!"
One guy posted on YouTube that the video would be a great commercial: 'Keystone light, good enough to make Steve Nash open his window.'"
but the makers of Keystone light seemed to distance themselves, telling CNN we had nothing to do with this video. Some online distanced themselves from keystone light, not exactly a premium beer. Nash should have realized it was a keystone and thrown it back posted one.
Of course there could have been more razzle dazzle like the two guys who made an entertaining video catapulting a beer, kicking a beer, skateboarding a beer, and bouncing one, but merely passing a beer between cars whizzing along the freeway is already unsafe and illegal. Though so far, there have been no charges.
We haven't seen a product hand-off like this since Grey Poupon. These two would have pouponed their pants if they did this at, say, 60 miles an hour.
