On Monday, Kerry Washington took to Instagram to show off her impressive basketball skills in a video inspired by the film.

The “Prom” star performs a series of tricks as the original “Space Jam” theme song plays in the background.

“Put me in Coach,” she joked, while tagging James in the caption.

ET Canada host Cheryl Hickey also took to Instagram after seeing the movie with her family.


“We love basketball in this house to say the least with our @raptors but this was something,” wrote Hickey, who modelled her “Space Jam” short track set in the clip.
