Admittedly, we're not excited at all to see Chase Budinger participate in the 2012 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. In fact, we're a little confused as to how and why he ended up in it in the first place. But we'll give the guy his props for putting this clip together. While his teammate Chandler Parsons talks to a bunch of reporters—or, at least, what appear to be reporters—"Air Bud" sets up a cardboard cutout of Yao Ming in the background and proceeds to jump over it to throw down a dunk. Clever.

Our only complaint: You probably should have saved that one for the actual Slam Dunk Contest, Bud. Unless, of course, you're planning on bringing the real Yao out and dunking over him. Hmmmm?
