Everybody Get Up, It's Time to Slam Now-Space Jam Nail Art Tribute.


                                                     

It's Friday, Friends!

It's been a long time coming and I am proud to introduce today's nail art tribute to 90's Cult Classic film, Space Jam. 

Space Jam is a 1996 animated/live action sports film that was geared toward family audiences starring NBA Legend, Michael Jordan.

In the film, Jordan has recently retired from playing professional basketball and is having an unsuccessful stint as a professional baseball player. Jordan struggles to adjust to his life outside the NBA and is the laughing stock of his baseball team.
Meanwhile, Aliens residing on Moron Mountain hatch a plot to enslave the Looney Tunes in order to force them to work in their theme park. The Looney Tunes challenge the Aliens to a basketball game in order to win their freedom.


Much to their chagrin, the Aliens went to a few NBA games and stole the ability to excel at the sport by possessing the best players on the team. With the essence stolen from the players, the Aliens begin to take on the players physical features going from small statures to gargantuan builds.

The Looney Tunes then journey to earth in order to convince Michael Jordan to play for their team so that they could keep their freedom.

Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes were like Peanut Butter and Chocolate in the '90s, a perfect match. Space Jam isn't the first time the two entities collided but it was the best time. Sports fans got to geek out and kids got some laugh.

Although the film had mix reviews from the critics, it generated $6 billion dollars in revenue, its soundtrack when 6-times platinum, and is set to get a sequel with Lebron James at the helm in 2021.
