If someone asked me what the greatest Youtube video involving Charles Oakley was, I’d likely assume one of his glorious oncourt fights with some unprepared and weaker opponent. Or him looking like he’s about to murder John Starks after Starks headbutts Reggie Miller. Or maybe an interview where he says menacing things while smiling.
But then I found this. Along with the video of Dan Akroyd and Tom Hanks rapping, this video may be in my pantheon of greatest Youtube video.
CHARLES OAKLEY COOKING SHOW.
And it’s everything I could ever want it to be and more. The title screen, with its badly edited floating peppers and flame text. The title song, with its raps about Oakley’s food “from the appetizers down to the entrees.” John Starks.
Oh, and at one point HE WEARS A CHEF HAT.
CHARLES OAKLEY IN A CHEF HAT.
I think I can now retire from watching Youtube videos.
