Yes, a cake was definitely harmed in the making of this video.

Oakland Raiders’ player Marquette King helped his teammate, quarterback Derek Carr, ring in his 26th birthday on Tuesday with a sweet treat – served in an unconventional way.

In the clip, posted on Twitter, King, 28, declared “DC, happy birthday man!” before punting a birthday cake at full force. The destroyed treat fell apart in slow motion, before King took a knee and someone off-camera declared the punt a success.

King’s efforts didn’t go unnoticed: Carr responded on social media with a series of laughing emojis, and a simple, “Thank you brother.”

The punter has played for the Raiders since the 2013 season, while Carr joined the team in 2014.

King is known for injecting a little humor into the game, and often posts videos of himself in humorous outfits on and off the field.

From kicking stuffed animals to practice in a sumo wrestling suit, King definitely keeps his teammates laughing.
