    Multiple people who work for the university actually said, “This idea is AWESOME!”

    What an absolute nightmare.

    Eeeek… This is like a really bad OutKast ripoff.

    UGH! Who the HELL thought this was a good idea?! This video deserves all of the mockery it is going to get.

    My life would have been 100% better had I not hit the play button. What I have just witnessed is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in the droning, incoherent video were they even close to anything that could be considered musical. Everyone on this blog is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Is that Emil? I thought he was all about Springsteen…

  • Don E. Brook

    Why? And who is that filling in for Johny Depp as the creepy new Willie Wonka?


    It’s not so bad if you mute the music and close your eyes during band scenes.

    Oh wow, this is just brutal guys…really, this is so embarrassing. We are gonna get massacred for this, and rightly so.

    Holy Shnikes!!! I thought I was the first blogger to uncover this nightmare at 4 this morning. You found it LAST NIGHT!!!

    There is no way on God’s green earth that you slept at all. Nightmares are coming for us all!

    We need to put the keep ND independent campaign aside and concentrate all energy on getting this removed from the internet and eradicating all proof that it ever existed.

    Someone get the Wolf from Pulp Fiction on the line.

  • DeepTeaKup

    There is no way this is real is it? BTW, who made the decision to start ripping of Penn State?


  • The Biscuit

    and the fake guitar/bass playing? LORD. either some other school go all of our footage and put it together to make us look stupid, or we have the absolute WORST marketers in the world working with us.

    At least they updated the cheerleaders’ uniforms.
    This is hysterical. And embarassing. But mostly hysterical.
    Certainly doesn’t resonate with the Notre Dame I knew, but hey, I guess the times, they are a-changin’, right?

  • Jonathan

    Get out in front of it? That’s like BP getting out in front of the oil spill and saying….wait. Yeah. Not funny yet. That’s the worst video ever. That’s gotta be a Keenan Revue skit or something, right? Please? It can’t be real. Sure, the cheerleaders are hot (-ter than I remember) but when did we become the Fighting Douchebags on Air Guitar? How does this happen? I feel sick.

  • Drew

    And when my friends said “Hey,Drew! You’re in another music video!” I thought, sweet I’ll check it out…and then this happened. It almost makes me regret playing the tuba…. We need OK Go to come back to ND and make another video to fix this mess! This is just crazy!

  • Justine

    I think I just died a little.

  • Brad

    I ache with embarrassment.

  • Thunder

    If Brian Kelly approved this, is it too late to start a new coaching search?

  • domer_mq

    Guys, the “real story” of this video, ie, the explanation of its origin, has been out for a day now. BK didn’t have anything to do with it. Nor did Fr. Jenkins. It’s still an atrocity of music, video, and ND branding, but no need to freak out. Just laugh in the embarrassment.

  • The Biscuit

    sorta feel like it’s my job to freak out. but, i understand too. and while it’s not an ‘official’ video, ND leadership could’ve said ‘this isnt right to distribute widely’ and clamped down on it before it was spread so widely. if someone in my company made a video representing it in the wrong way, no matter the good intentions or the origin, i wouldnt put it out there.

    I think the student 14 seconds into the video is giving Freakbass the bird.
