Will Smith Says "Boom Goes The Dynamite" At Oscars
Media

"Boom Goes The Dynamite" Reaches Its Pinnacle At The Oscars

I'm sure most of you are unfamiliar with Brian Collins, but I'm most of you know his famous catchphrase "Boom goes the dynamite." That phrase was uttered by Collins during the most excruciating 4 minutes in sportscasting history, and has since been lampooned by pretty much everyone at some point in time. But last night, "Boom goes the dynamite" reached a global audience as the Fresh Prince of Bel Air dropped the line after he screwed up trying to pronounce "outstanding." Take it away Will.



My guess is that very few people understood what the hell Smith was talking about, but hilarious nonetheless. Meanwhile, Collins should have trademarked that phrase. If he had, he'd be a millionaire by now, no question.

And just for old times' sake, here's the original Collins broadcast.




"Boom goes the dynamite" makes it all the way to the Oscars. [Awful Announcing]

I think the Boom Goes The Dynamite video is the first one I ever gave a thumbs up on FanIQ.  Instant classic....

Everything he says is terrible...someone must have changed his notes...Ball State started off good then ended up poorly...??? They lost 6-0...Did they get someone on base before getting shutout?

WOW!!!!!!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL. I don't know how I have never seen this video!!! It's so bad it seems like he must have practiced it.  How did this guy ever get a job?  This guy makes Chris Berman look like a genius.  "Reggie Miller's looking good, he shoots a three....and it's good" awesome, especially because it was a New Jersey Net who made the shot.  ! At least he whipped out a catch phrase.. Summers= Simien
