Desus And Mero Keep It Real About What They Think These Winter Olympic Sports Should Actually Be Called

With a total of 15 sports in the Winter Olympics this year, it can become quite difficult to keep track of which sport is which, especially if you’re not a Winter Olympics expert. However, TV hosts Desus and Mero discovered a way of making these sports easier to remember.

Recently on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Desus and Mero went through a list of nine different Winter Olympic Sports and gave each one a new title. Here’s what this comedic duo came up with:

They renamed Cross-Country Skiing to:

Their face expressions really show you how they feel about this sport.

The sport Curling became:

This is the most accurate description of this sport..

And Speed Skating was given the new name of:

But shouldn’t every Winter Olympic sport be renamed this way?

As for the Luge, Desus and Mero went with the new name of:

Nothing more, nothing less. Just two friends who are *really* comfortable with each other.

Bobsledding was renamed as:

If you’ve never seen the movie, then you might not understand the meaning behind this name.

Instead of calling this Snowboarding, they decided to go with:

So if you’re an athlete ballin’ on a budget, this is the perfect Winter Olympic sport for you.

Since they weren’t impressed with the sport Nordic Combined, they decided to rename it as:

Seriously. Who has ever heard of Nordic Combined outside of the Winter Olympics.

They decided to give Ski Jumping the new name of:

“Nooooope” is the exact response I would give if someone asked me if I wanted to go Ski Jumping.

And as for the ninth and final sport, they decided to change the name of Ice Hockey to…

Twitter LOL’d So Hard At Nike’s Outfits That They Thought Were Inspired By Mexican School Outfits

In early 2018, Nike launched some sportswear for women and Twitter got a hold of it because something about them looked oddly familiar.

The khaki and black combo — which averages about $160 for the set — is actually very similar to certain uniforms in Mexico.

As Luis Ricardo from Puebla, Mexico, said on Twitter, the company must have been inspired by their public school uniforms.

“Like SEP says, ‘Keep the same pants until Nike gets inspired by them.’ And it worked,” @RamosAparte tweeted.

The new line is almost identical to that of uniforms delegated by the Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP), which is known as Mexico’s public school system.

A publication in Mexico also agreed.

“The new #Nike collection will take you back to secondary school,” @Mileno added.

The color scheme is just too similar.

People straight up clowned Nike for the similarities.

They really are so similar to the school uniforms that it is hard not to clown them on it.

Some people on Twitter are having flashbacks to their school days.

Imagine walking into a store and seeing your old school uniforms as the height of fashion. Talk about shook.

Others believe they can easily replicate the “fresh” look.

That is genius. Who wants to send me their uniforms so I can be all cool and stuff?

Some think the designer is just into Mexico’s taste in fashion.

When is Mexico not an inspiration?

But how many times have you seen school uniforms dictate fashion trends?

We’ll wait.

Some people did seem less than thrilled that it seems the coporation ripped off a Mexican school uniform.

Others hope Mexico is getting some kind of royalty check from the designers.
