For those of you who haven’t seen it, “smack cam” is one of the latest — and most violent — trends that is sweeping the world of social media. Basically, smack cam consists of people whacking their friends in the face with any item that is readily accessible and posting a short video of it on Vine. The St. Louis Rams are fully on board with it.
Defensive end Chris Long was smacked in the face with a plate of whipped cream by cornerback Cortland Finnegan during a recent interview with NFL Network. According to Long, Finnegan is the one who started the war. But the video you see above may have been payback for this:
Long and Finnegan have an ongoing smack cam rivalry, but they are not the only two players who have fallen victim. The trend seems to have gone viral through the Rams’ locker room the same way it has on the internet.
Wait until the prankmaster Pete Carroll catches wind of this. He’s going to have a field day with his players.Google+
