The LA Clippers shared a short trailer on Twitter this morning alluding to the upcoming “Bobi + Tobi” show, featuring Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic.
When you’re a celebrity living in Los Angeles, two things are certain. Firstly, everybody will want to take pictures with you. And secondly, someone will want to make a reality show about you.
The first surely applies to both Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic, given Harris’ role with the Clippers and Marjanovic’s monstrous size. And now, the second applies as well.
The Bobi + Tobi show will officially launch tomorrow, according to the LA Clippers official Twitter account. The first episode, titled “The Pre-preseason” appears to follow around the duo as they work out and get some dancing done before the season.
The two have shared a friendship for some time now, dating back to their first days together in Detroit playing for the Pistons. Since then, numerous videos have gone viral on Twitter and other social media platforms, featuring the two dancing and having fun. Over the summer, Bleacher Report released a video of their own that may be similar to The Bobi + Tobi Show, which showed Harris and Marjanovic pulling pranks in Las Vegas.
Harris and Marjanovic each have All-Star personalities, and given the amount of fanfare surrounding the two, it’s safe to assume that the show will be a success.
Chances are, the episodes will be short-form comedy videos, similar to what we saw with Jordan Brand’s BGCP3TV in HD — which also featured two Clipper teammates, Blake Griffin and Chris Paul. And while it was good for a few laughs, it’s clear that Griffin and Paul never shared the same kind of connection that Marjanovic and Harris do.
There’s no telling how long the series will last, but it is something that fans have been clamoring for for some time. Assuming the show goes viral, we could be in for quite a few episodes of The Bobi + Tobi Show — and here’s hoping it does.
