Huh? Kareem Shills for Smashing Pumpkins

Well, since he’s already attended Bonnaroo, used their john and read a chess book seemingly within the same day, we guess Kareem Abdul-Jabbar can be anointed as a hipster. Besides, who are we to doubt anything the basketball/Airplane legend does? But regardless, this clip truly befuddles us as the man once long ago known as Lew Alcindor plugs a new Smashing Pumpkins efforts called Oceania, which is being billed as an “album within an album” according to the band’s main man Billy Corgan, who seems to have forged a friendship with Abdul-Jabbar according to their Twitter convo (below). Well, who are we to judge the bond between an apparently Ewok-saluting man who gave us some of our favorite ’90s albums and a man who gave us some fine basketball highlights? Let’s hope this goes viral as the parties involve intended.
