For those NBA fans who paid to watch the Pelicans-Thunder game on Sunday, there was a major twist in the game they witnessed. In a game of basketball, where athletes were competing, they ended up cheering for a bunch of adorable babies, queued up against one another.
The main highlight of the event was its halftime when the audience was treated with an incredible baby race.
The contesting babies were crawling across the floor at Smoothie King Center. As focused as the babies were in their mission, they were actually trying to win their parents a gift voucher worth $250 to the Pelicans pro shop.
First, watch the video of the most dramatic race:
