Kevin Hart reacts to meme comparing his encounter with Anthony Davis to ‘Elf’
Comedian Kevin Hart was among the many Hollywood stars to attend an intra-city matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers, where he soon would find himself as a meme-able character as Anthony Davis came stumbling into his lap like a lost kid at a mall looking for Santa Claus.

It didn’t take long for the internet to turn this happenstance into a Christmas-themed meme for all to enjoy, starring none other than fellow actor Will Ferrell in the movie “Elf.”
Hart didn’t have many options but to laugh at himself after a side-by-side of one of the movie’s funniest moments was compared to the Lakers star landing on his lap.
Former co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teased him some more in the comments, saying: “You don’t smile this big when I sit on your lap… wtf man!??”
It was surely an enjoyable moment for Hart, even if it meant hauling all 250 pounds of a 6-foot-10 Anthony Davis on his lap. The charismatic host of “Cold As Balls” is usually the one trolling NBA athletes on his show in the LOL Network, so it was only fair that fans and viewers got to laugh at his expense for once.
