San Antonio Spurs mascot mocks Mariah Carey’s NYE performance


The San Antonio Spurs mascot helped ring in the first home game of the new year by poking fun at Mariah Carey’s not-so-ringing New Year’s Eve performance. 

Meet “Coyote Carey.”

With the help of the team’s Silver Dancers, the always-eccentric Spurs Coyote appeared on court to do a routine to Carey’s song “Emotion” during Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors. It’s the same song Carey intended on performing when audio problems led the singer to stroll around the stage instead of singing. 

The mascot nailed Carey’s look too, dressed in a nude-colored leotard and sequined tights, adding in a white vest. After “singing” for a few seconds, the Coyote taps its mic before promptly walking off the court. 

After the show, the Coyote even parodied Carey’s post-performance tweet. 

Watch the video below.
