Student gets dunked on during class | History of the Dunk Cam

It all started back in May when 2 kids came up with this idea to dunk on people in the school hallways by having 1 guy hold up a trash can while the other dunks on the unsuspecting victim.

Like the Harlem Shake, everybody everywhere including NBA players like DeAndre Jordan (dunking on Charissa Thompson) started making their own versions of the viral video. Labeled the “Dunk Cam,” the craze spilled over the workplace and home life where everybody from co-workers to parents were getting dunked on over the summer.

Last month, ESPN followed Orlando Magic rookie Victor Oladipo and Bobcat rookie Cody Zeller around the NBA rookie shoot as they posterized fellow rookies like Shabazz Muhammad.

But the best Dunk Cam yet comes courtesy of this entire classroom that setup that one guy who is always late to class.
