Pelicans employees discuss their roles in hugely-popular lottery-night video

It was the most popular and widely-viewed NBA video on Twitter from Tuesday, May 14 – no small feat, considering Game 1 of the Western Conference finals took place that night in Oracle Arena. A 24-second clip featuring New Orleans Pelicans employees jubilantly reacting to a draft-lottery win has amassed over four million Twitter views, but that’s only a portion of the people who’ve seen it. Hours later, the video by Ashley Amoss appeared on Scott Van Pelt’s nightly show and was the subject of the ESPN host’s segment called “The Best Thing I Saw Today.” The next morning, it appeared on “Good Morning America,” as well as “The Today Show” and countless other national TV broadcasts.

This week, Pelicans.com sat down with a handful of employees who displayed some of the most boisterous reactions, to get their perspective on starring in a video that spread seemingly everywhere in American media.
