'No-body's safe': SlamminSounders are posterizing unsuspecting bystanders

This is easily the best thing you'll ever see on the internet ... at least until next week.

Around this time last year, the Harlem Shake was taking over the Internet. Some people found it awesome, others thought it awful and plenty of us just thought it was really funny to see professional athletes dressing up and dancing. Well, let's hope the Internet meme that takes off this year has to do with people getting dunked on.

Perhaps inspired by Michelle Obama's dunk on the Miami Heat, a group calling themselves "SlamminSounders" are threatening to posterize unsuspecting bystanders this MLS preseason.

That's a newly shaven Josh Ford, a wonderfully bearded Lamar Neagle and the boy-wonder DeAndre Yedlin in case you haven't figured it out already. Their first victim appears to be Brett Johnson, the team's longtime assistant equipment manager (video above).

Not to be overlooked in this is the rather impressive vertical displayed by Mr. Neagle. He comes pretty darn close to clearing Johnson while Ford sneaks in with the rim and Yedlin, presumably, films the action.

Let's hope there's more to come.
