There’s a short video of a man dressed in clerics blocking a young man trying to dunk with a basketball – and it’s going viral.

Commenters on Facebook are having a lot of fun with the video.

“Ye shall not pass,” wrote Sean Martinson, “Not in mine house. The Father doth reject thee, Jacob. Yea, all the prideful who rise shall be made humble in the court of the Lord.”

Another person, Fernando Aguilar, wrote, “Not in the lord’s house Jimmy!”

The man doing the blocking in the video appears to be Ben Barr, a seminarian for the Diocese of Pittsburgh.

Here’s a slow-mo version shared by Bleacher Report that’s been getting shared all over Facebook:
