In this day and age, it feels like there are so many of these "crowd goes bananas over awesome play by their favorite team" videos that one film crew is making them all in a Hollywood basement. However, this video of the University of Wisconsin football squad going nuts over Randall Cobb's touchdown reception to virtually cement the Packers as NFC North champs is a welcome twist on the genre.
Watch freshman running back and Bears fan Vonte Jackson experience one of the more depressing moments of sports fandom while his teammates dance around him. He looks like he needs a hug.
Since the video began making the rounds, his Wisconsin teammates have begun nicknaming him the "sad bear kid" and "lonesome bear fan":
