Strangely Satisfying Video: Raiders' Marquette King Punts a Birthday Cake for His Quarterback
The Oakland Raiders' quarterback, Derek Carr, celebrated his 26th birthday on Tuesday
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.
