There is truth in that A&M video

Tuesday July 3rd, 2012

Just before midnight Monday, we were informed of the existence of what we now only need call The Texas A&M Video by @cuppycup, one of the program's own proponents. Evidence of its existence was quickly scrubbed, but not before a copy was procured.

And you know what? We're not even going to make fun. These young people are not enthusiastic demonstrators of the cheers of their new conference-mates, and why should they be? This is the cinematic equivalent of forced pregame handshakes, and good on them for screaming with their eyes how much they really would rather be earning independent study credit hours in some other fashion, any other fashion. The blooper reel at the end serves to further humanize the actors, and ratchets up our sympathy levels. We are forever grateful that YouTube barely existed when we were in college.
