"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Earlier this week, BlockM made a video request for a spoof on the trailer for The Happening, implying that Denard is, in fact, The Happening. I saw the thread and thought, I have a lot of free time this week and that sounds fun, chores be damned. I am by no means a professional video editor, but I've done something like this once before and figured I'd take a shot. Here's my shot:
(WATCH IN HIGH QUALITY! AND FULL SCREEN!)
Hope you all enjoy it. And I hope this is close to what you had in mind, BlockM. Some notes:
1. I made the video unlisted on YouTube to try to avoid it getting taken down for copyright issues. You can only reach it through a link, so here's the link:
2. If you think there should be any changes, let me know. The video is easily altered.
3. Mods: I wasn't sure whether to put this on the Board or in the Diaries, but I didn't want it to get buried on the board and be missed by anyone who wanted to see it, e.g. the person who requested it be made. Feel free to move it if you must.
I am the owner of the domain name SHOELACEROBINSON.com. Curious to know if any of you Michigan fans would be interested in purchasing it?
I purchased to the rights to this domain years ago for a totally unrelated reason... I used to work for a motivator named John Robinson who used to wear crazy shoelaces, it was his gimmick. Anyway, he moved onto something else and we took down the actual page, but domain is still there.
Being a college football fan, I realized I might have something when Denard Robinson exploded onto the scene early in the season.
Anyway, not sure if this is the place to promote this, but if you are interested in SHOELACEROBINSON.com please email me back Sceldos@yahoo.com. Thanks!
I read some of the comments on the OSU board. Its funny how they are attacking all of the UM fans for the DENARD ROBINSON!!! hype, but really it was the likes of ESPN and other TV media outlets that are creating it. I think we all understand that it has only been two games and winning in the B10 has yet to be seen, but still nobody has been better than DENARD ROBINSON!!! this year. So bring on the hype monster, OSU fans are just pissed that it took TP so long to produce.

Alright, it's the morning after, and I can say definitively that this video does not get any less epic after repeated views. I've successfully downloaded it to save on my computer and converted it to save on my iPod. I must never be without this video.
That was really cool. I watched it multiple times already. I appreciate our obssessed and talented fanbase.
Recommendations [because you requested.] -- 1) I think you should put "This film is not yet rated."; and 2) it's difficult to see the blue "Warning", although i like the idea of putting it in blue, it's just too hard to see the word ... I had to actually stop the film to see what it said.
