A few weeks ago, actress Mindy Kaling asked her more than 1.4 million Twitter followers if they were embarassed by the Bruno Mars hit "The Lazy Song", and if they thought that the song brought shame on our country.
"Zee Americans, it zeems, fetishize sloth and inactivity," Kaling tweeted in a mock foreign voice.
Today, Celtics forward and almost NBA free agent Glen Davis shot a video of himself singing "The Lazy Song" in his car, tweeting, "This is how I feel today!!!! Love this song."
The image Davis is trying to project now is one of a desirable free agent. Davis averaged 11.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game during the 2010-11 season, but his play fell off sharply in the playoffs, where he averaged 4.9 points and 3.6 rebounds over 21.2 minutes. Davis will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and while he and the team have said they are open to Davis staying in Boston, his playing status is very much up in the air.
