Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? The Delaware 87ers do, thanks to some super “coral” uniforms inspired by everyone’s favorite yellow sponge. The Philadelphia 76ers’ G League team sported a “SpongeBob Squarepants”-themed ensemble during Wednesday’s game as part of their Nickelodeon Night—and social media couldn’t get enough of the hilarious getup.

The uniform features a yellow jersey that resembles a sponge and shorts that include elements of SpongeBob’s iconic pants (square shape not included). The Delaware 87ers kept up the SpongeBob theme on their Twitter throughout the evening, having fun by tweeting Spongebob gifs and photos.

According to USA Today, this isn’t the first outrageous uniform design the 87ers have had. Last month, they hosted Star Wars Night and donned BB-8 uniforms, while they wore pink Power Ranger uniforms for another Nickelodeon Night. But don’t worry, the silly designs have a serious purpose: the themed nights and jerseys benefit various organizations and charities.

Tonight, the uniforms “will be autographed and auctioned off to fans postgame,” according to the team’s official Twitter profile. The proceeds will be donated to CHILD, Inc., a local nonprofit organization that supports troubled or neglected children and works with families who have been affected by domestic violence.
