After watching this GIF, it’s easy to conclude that Rich Old Guy Performatively Dressed In Casual Wear is your typical square who went and crapped all over what could have been a cool moment with his supreme awkwardness. But wait, let’s take a closer look:

The truth is that Kobe is the one who blew it. As you can clearly see, the old white guy comes at the situation with solid technique, seeking to execute a standard handshake-fingersnap-dap combination. Everything would have been just fine if Kobe hadn’t stuck his hand out there like rigor mortis was setting in. Keep your chin up, old guy, for you did not play yourself.
