LA Clippers star Blake Griffin has received all kinds of accolades in his career so far. The 22-year-old was named the NBA Rookie of the Year last season, and won the 2011 Slam Dunk contest after jumping over a Kia Optima.

But some of his lesser-known talents are just now being recognized. After announcing that he would take on an unpaid internship at comedy website Funny or Die, Griffin now appears in a bunch of videos for the site.

A few of them, including the one below, were written and directed by Griffin. What follows is some surprisingly weird, off-beat and hilarious shit, that you might not expect from a newb to the comedy realm. Enjoy.
