Boston College clearly failed to learn from Notre Dame going full Freekbass as they decided to unleash “BC Funk” on the world. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, here you go:
Dear God, BC, what have you done? Look, I understand this was a student project. I’m sure it took a lot of effort, everyone had a great time, etc., etc. However, you unleashed this on the internet. Have you met the internet? It’s full of assholes.
Have you met the section of the internet that includes college football bloggers that love getting post idea freebies during the offseason? They’re even worse. Especially ones that already helped hijack a Twitter hashtag experiment BC ran.
You failed to learn from us. You brought this on yourself. And now I get to throw rocks in my glass house.
0:01 – Yep, this is happening. We have an eagle dancing.
0:09 – Be thankful y’all decided to monetize this. Smartest decision you made. I really, truly hope you rake in enough money to build a wall that can hide your shame.
0:10 – Bros a couch? Bros on a couch. Everyone’s on a different beat too.
0:19 – We are the woooooooorld…oh wait, wrong bit.
0:31 – A shoutout for BC hockey, complete with a shot of no fans at the damn game.
0:37 – Scene from a rejected movie pitch for Paul Blart: Mall Cop 3 – The College Years.
0:57 – Uh, guys…you’re on a Catholic campus.
1:03 – Are these all the fans from the hockey game earlier?
1:17 – This video was published on May 5…just how long have y’all been sitting on this footage? And more importantly DID ANYONE TELL YOU THIS WAS A BAD IDEA BETWEEN THE TIME YOU FILMED THIS TO NOW?!
1:38 – Only missing a selfie stick.
1:40 – “F*&k this, I’m out.”
1:49 – Look, I’m just going to give this guy credit for clearly not giving a damn.
1:53 – And now the entire world can prank call your police station.*
*We don’t endorse prank calling cops. Please don’t take blog jokes seriously. But still WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!
2:09 – THAT’S NOT HOW BIKES ARE SUPPOSED TO WORK!
2:12 – With everything going on in this frame, kudos to the guy that refused to have his face shown in this scene.
“BC’s gonna show their ass with this video so I will too” – genius.
2:22 – Director: “Okay for this shot, I want everyone to get out their Macbooks!”
Girl: “But I don’t have a Macbook.”
Director: “Uh…well…just go to the edge of the shot, improvise, and hope no one notices!”
2:31 – I’m sure the joke here is “band and color guard switch props”, but the whole time I’m wondering if the guy just lost his job in the band and everyone’s trying to make him feel better.
2:37 – NIGHTMARE FUEL
2:45 – Wha…what are you doing to that vacuum cleaner?
3:23 – One guy is really hyped to be in the video. Another isn’t and is wearing a Houston Oilers hoodie what I can also assume is silent protest. The Oilers don’t even exist anymore, but he refuses to wear any BC appearal in this scene or even open his eyes to the reality of his world falling apart around him.
3:32 – Design pro-tip: dark font on a dark background is damn near impossible to read.
3:57 – Mean muggin’ eagle wings, yo.
4:27 – Stop pointing at me, you did this.
In fact, it looks like people within your ranks agree:

So what have we learned today? Never, ever release a school pride video out into the wild. The private function on YouTube will spare you the internet laughter.
Or do. The offseason is long and low-hanging fruit is always delicious.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
