Tuesday morning, Denver Nuggets forward Juancho Hernangomez sent out an Instagram clip of him crossing his basketball-playing brother, Willy Hernangomez, over and draining a 3-pointer.
Willy, a center for the New York Knicks, responded in kind by publishing a clip on his Instagram that featured him dunking over his younger brother.
The highlights the Hernangomez brothers — Hernangomi? — pinged out were clips from the popular video game NBA 2K18, which is set to hit shelves next month.
The video snippets were both featured in the music video for the song “Ultima Jugada” — which translates to “Last Play” in English — a collaboration between Spanish artists Arkano and Carlos Jean. “Ultima Jugada” is included on NBA 2K18’s overseas soundtrack.
The “Ultima Jugada” music video attempts to illustrate how life-like NBA 2K18 is by mashing together clips of Juancho and Willy playing one on one in the video game and in real life.
This was my personal favorite part.
Someone make sure Carlos Jean is OK.
NBA 2K18 is scheduled to hit shelves Sept. 19. It’s available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch and PC. Those who preordered the game can start playing Sept. 15.
