Manny Pacquiao 'Bang Bang Bang' Video: Lampley Says Bang 16 Times
Jim Lampley Said "Bang!" 16 Times in 30 Seconds During the Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottley Fight. Will the Jim Lampley-Manny Pacquiao "Bang" Video Be the Birth of an Internet Meme?
Words couldn't describe Manny Pacquiao's domination of Joshua Clottley on Saturday night. At least HBO announcer Jim Lampley couldn't find them. During the Pacquaio vs Clottley fight, Jim Lampley resorted to shouting out the word “Bang” to describe Pacquiao's dominance.
Pacquiao vs Clottley Result Never in Doubt
Pacquaio retained his WBO welterweight championship Saturday night with a 12-round unanimous decision before a crowd of nearly 51,000 at Cowboys Stadium. Clottey spent most of the fight playing defense, standing still and covering up his body. Pacquiao threw a staggering 1,231 punches to Clottey's 399.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Pacquiao threw so many punches that TV announcer Jim Lampley had to resort to sound effects to describe the fight. During the eighth round of the Pacquiao-Clottley fight, Jim Lampley shouted Bang! Bang! Bang! every time the Filipino sensation threw a punch.
Here's an excerpt:
“Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Try and stop it! Bang! Bang! Here I come! Bang!”
Lampley shouted out Bang about 16 times in less than 30 seconds. It's hard to blame Lampley for running out of things to say since the fight was so uneventful. You can only be so original when a guy throws more than 1,2000 punches.
It's hard to predict this kind of thing--Bang!-- but it's a safe bet that the Jim Lampley Manny Pacquiao call--Bang!--will become something of an internet meme—Bang! Bang!
It won't replace “Boom Goes the Dynamite” but it may come close.
