1. Grace Care is an orphanage in Kenya. Over 200 children live there, but there is no field for the children to play in.
2. So in an effort to raise the money to get a field, the orphanage made this video of the kid’s re-enacting Larry Bird’s famous 1987 Eastern Conference Finals Game 5 steal.
3. Here’s a GIF of the two plays side-by-side:
4. DJ and Bird’s famous hug.
5. They even got one fan’s arm-waving cheer down.
6. But my favorite part by far were the establishing shots of fans “outside the game.”
7. And ticket takers/security as fans entered “the arena.”
Both are just spot-on recreations.
