Video of the Dunk of the Summer ruined

First and foremost, this dunk is nasty.

That much is obvious. As you can see, when Angelo Sharpless of Elizabeth City State throws himself an alley-opp by bouncing the ball over a hapless defenders head on the break, it is worthy of the praise it will receive (h/t The Dagger):

More importantly, however, this is a perfect example of one of the biggest problems in our society: holding a cell phone vertically while filming something awesome.

It really isn’t that difficult, folks. Turn the phone sideways. That way, we might actually get a good view of Sharpless’ dunk instead of a video that only takes up a quarter of the possible space. It’s not difficult, people.

Turn the phone sideways. It’s a movement.
